Choose your experience, build your network and shape your future

This isn’t just another training program. It’s a unique experience shaped by what you love about digital design and what the industry needs.

APPLICATION PROCESS

TNDS will select a maximum of 15 people for the 2019 class. The selection will be based on motivation, potential and culture fit.

⚠️ Please submit your application by October 30th or August 30th depending on wether you have or don't have a Schengen visa.

In addition to filling out a form with your details, you’ll be asked to complete a Motivation Task (you’ll find the instructions to complete the task on the application form).

After we’ve assessed your application, and if it successfully passes the first stage, you’ll be invited for an interview. This interview will happen remotely, via Skype or a similar service. This interview will be our chance to get to know you better, and also for you to ask us any questions you might have about TNDS, Porto, or anything we might be able to help with.

Until November 15th, if you're a Schengen Zone citizen, or until September 15th, if not, you’ll get an answer from us. If you’re selected, you’ll receive an Invitation Letter. Your place at TNDS will only be secured after we’ve received 1) your answer on whether or not you want to join us, and 2) payment of the first tuition instalment.

Once the application and selection logistics are out of the way, it’s time to start planning your adventure (flights, accommodation, visa, goodbye & welcome parties, etc.)! 🚀

You’ll need to be in Porto by January 14th for the awesome TNDS Welcome Days.
