上周在做有关米兰理工大学的直播时《热度这么高?那再来聊一聊米兰理工大学【20200521直播】》,有小伙伴在弹幕中希望马克笔设计留学能够有机会聊一聊瑞典于默奥大学这所相对比较冷门的院校。其实在过去几年时间中我曾多次希望能够用一篇文章详细的去介绍这所拥有顶尖设计专业的学校,但是由于这所学校实在太过冷门,冷门到在过去3年我们这边没有任何一个同学将它作为申请瑞典院校的第一选择。

因此这次趁热打铁,这次借各位小伙们的弹幕互动,我将通过这篇文章详细分析一下于默奥大学,希望它也能像奥斯陆建筑设计学院AHO这所学校一样,成为更多小伙伴的首选。

1.院校介绍

Umea University | 于默奥大学
官网:https://www.umu.se/
2020年QS世界院校艺术设计排名:26
2020年QS世界院校综合排名:340

2.专业设置

由于本科阶段是瑞典语授课,因此就直接从硕士设计相关的专业开始介绍。其实开设的专业并不是很多,分为建筑、设计和美术三个方向,共计6个专业。而正是凭借着为数不多的专业,于默奥大学一直都跻身于世界顶尖艺术专业院校,也从另一方面证实了于默奥这几个设计相关专业的强大和受到的认可。

Master’s Programme in Interaction Design | 交互设计
Master’s Programme in Transportation Design | 交通工具设计
Master’s Programme in Advanced Product Design | 产品设计

Master’s Programme in Architecture and Urban Design | 建筑城市设计

Master’s Programme in Human-Computer Interaction and Social Media | 人机交互

3.申请要求

瑞典院校的申请相对于其它国家会有很大的不同,在统一的申请系统universityadmissions进行第一步申请,在申请时最多可以同时申请4所瑞典学校,每所学校最多选择一个专业。同时在系统中需要对申请学校进行排名,原则上学校同步申请,不过只会优先显示志愿更高的学校录取。举个简单的例子,如果同时申请于默奥大学和查尔姆斯理工大学,如果于默奥大学是你的第一选择,那么即使查尔姆斯理工大学也录取你了,系统中也只会显示于默奥大学的录取。因此在申请时一定要考虑好,到底哪所学校是你的第一选择哦!

申请时间:1月15日
背景要求:本科相关专业,举个例子,如果是申请交互设计专业,那么本科设计相关的课程学分不得少于60个学分。瑞典的几所院校对于转专业申请的“容忍度”都不是很高,如果是想转专业申请一定要注意在校选修设计相关的课程,或者增加设计相关的工作实习经历。
语言要求:雅思总分不低于6.5,单科不低于5.5分;托福总分不低于90分,写作不低于20分;
申请材料:成绩单+学位证明+语言证明+动机信+个人简历+护照+作品集

除了对于作品集的要求之外,于默奥还会在申请第一阶段结束后选取一些符合要求的学生让他们提交相关的视频。例如在2019年申请季中,MFA programme in Interaction Design专业方向共120个学生申请,其中60个人被要求提交视频。就这,学校还发了个恭喜,真是贴心。

4.简单说一点

首先于默奥大学的招生人数是真的少,少到什么程度呢?还是以交互设计专业举例,每年招生人数为10-12人。

其次它的学费是真的贵,两年的学费总计是585000瑞典克朗,换成人民币大概在45W左右。作为对比,我们看看查尔姆斯理工大学的学费是140000瑞典克朗/年,两年是280000瑞典克朗。这熟悉的味道是不是很像英国皇家艺术学院?

因此对于申请于默奥大学的建议就是如果你能承受它的学费,那么这是一所你去了肯定不会后悔的优秀学校!
