applying for a course at CREA
Application for courses at CREA is open to anyone over the age of 18. CREA employs rates and conditions of different categories. Depending on these you may or may not receive a discount and/or receive priority when applying (please see below for the priority regulations).
Applying/enrolling to courses can only be done via this website or in-person at the secretarial office on Monday-Friday between 09:00-17:00.
what are the priority regulations?
A priority regulation until September 1 pertaining to the courses of the autumn semester applies to the following two categories: students of any educational establishments and recent graduates of the UvA and HvA. These are permitted to apply to courses before others. This right-of-way applies to the spring semester courses until January 1. Please check your category here. This priority regulation does not apply to the summer courses.
what is an autumn course, a spring course or a summer course?
The autumn courses will commence in September, and the spring courses will commence in Februari. The summer courses will commence in July and August. Each course will detail in which season it will fall.
CREA offers courses in Dutch (NL), in English (EN) and courses open to anyone (NL/EN). Please keep in mind that within courses in the last category the teacher might use both languages to make sure everyone can keep up. Carefully check to which category your course belongs before enrolling (there’s a flag in every course information block).
CREA does not refund course contributions which have been paid unless:
– your course is cancelled;
– you cancel your enrolment at least two weeks before the course starts;
– you were not accepted after an audition (wherever relevant).
Anyone who registers for a CREA course, thereby agrees to our conditions. This includes the possible cancellation of courses, refundment and our entry requirements. So please read them carefully first (see below).
absence of participants
When a participant is unable to attend a lesson, he should call CREA to inform them.
photography and video recordings
It is customary that during courses and presentations photos are taken and video recordings made for PR use, such as flyers, posters, the CREA website and the media. Unless you make your objections known prior to the course (CREA, t.a.v. cursusadministratie, Nieuwe Achtergracht 170, 1018 WV Amsterdam, mentioning the course in question) CREA assumes that you agree to this. Naturally you can always tell the photographer on the spot if you don’t wish to be photographed.
works made during the courses
Works made by participants during the courses will be kept no longer than 3 weeks after the course has ended.
CREA accepts no liability for damage or the loss of property and goods of participants.
