School Information Sessions

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!
