Before the entrance exam period begins, IAMAS holds information sessions and an open house. At the information sessions, people considering applying to IAMAS can talk to faculty members one-on-one about research and student life at our school. The Open House is held in the IAMAS school building, and features a school tour, lectures by faculty members, and exhibitions of work and reserach. If you are interested, we hope to see you there!
