Codarts Rotterdam only admits a limited number of students. Students who have passed the final selection are admissible. If after the selection process there are more suitable candidates than places available, the head of the study programma has to make a new definitive selection. Candidates who make it through this last selection can be placed and will receive an enrolment package. Other suitable candidates who cannot be admitted will be placed on a waiting list. Candidates who are admitted are requested to let Codarts know within one month whether they will definitely take part in the programme. If a candidate fails to respond on time, Codarts can offer his/her place to a student who is on the waiting list.
