Are you still thinking about where to study? Does it feel overwhelming? Let us help you with some tips about how to get started!
When I was applying to study design at Aalto university the application process was hard and it took time, but it wasn’t impossible either. With a little bit of help and support, it’s achievable.
You are talented enough and creative to do it!
Be open towards your studies and the given possibilities. Many schools offer rich curricula and interesting study experiences.

One thing that I have learned through my studies is not to be afraid to take challenges and to step out of my comfort zone. When you feel relaxed, you should be concerned because it means you aren’t moving far enough out of your comfort zone, to take measures that will help you grow and prosper.
The same rule applies when you are applying to universities. Why limit yourself just to one option?
You should step out and take a look at all the possibilities you could have. Of course, you might be concerned about what if I fail, what if this is pointless and leads to nothing. There is no such thing, everything leads somewhere.
All the applications that you submit give you a chance to challenge yourself. Each time when you think about the assignment that you need to create or the portfolio that you need to put together, it helps you to grow as an artist and opens new perspectives for you.
Whenever you participate in an interview it gives you more confidence in yourself and also you practice skills like self-presentation.
Challenge yourself to do more, do not be afraid to have ambitious goals.
Especially concerning your future. Because you never know, maybe the university that you are considering in the back of your mind would be a study perfect place for you. There will always be people around you who will support you and give feedback on your ideas.

When you will start to work on your application you will notice that many universities have the same requirements and actually what they are expecting from you isn’t something impossible.
They just want to get to know you and see how you are thinking and evolving as a person. So don’t be afraid to show who you are let your ideas flow and be dear to propose the most impossible things!
It is time to be creative and give yourself more than one opportunity.
Take the risk even if it feels impossible right now or even if you think that you do not have time for it. Remember that it’s all up to you and don’t feel pressured about it, because it is just you expanding your creativity!
