Lower tuition fee for first-year students
If it is the first time you are enrolling in a bachelor's degree programme, then you may be eligible to pay only half of the statutory tuition fees for the first year when you are an EU-citizen.
The bachelor’s programme covers three years. In the course of the programme you’ll work on a series of projects. You’ll invent creative and original solutions for current social and cultural issues, in the form of artistic products or artful interventions. Think installations, films, performances, and games. Think meetings, publications, plans, and enterprises. Each and every invention will be the result of interdisciplinary teamwork. Your teachers are experts in their fields and have experience with interdisciplinary encounters.
Workshops & seminars
Next to each project you’ll participate in various workshops and seminars. Here’s where you deepen your knowledge and exercise the artistic, technical and academic skills that you can immediately put to work in each of your projects. You’ll attend workshops focusing specifically on the fine arts, music, literature and drama. You’ll also develop an academic perspective on the relationship between art, language, technology, tradition, and public spaces.
As the programme advances, you’ll further develop your own direction of artistic and intellectual growth. You’ll also learn how to manage your projects professionally and make them financially viable. In the second year, there is time to deepen your artistic discours and to further train your capacities in projects with external partners. In the final year you’ll do an international internship. After this, you’ll develop and complete a graduation project of your own. You’ll write a bachelor’s thesis in which you reflect critically on your own work.
In addition to the projects you’ll have extra time to independently explore and cultivate your interests and talents. For example, you can use this time for a minor programme, a traineeship or a project abroad. Our student advisors are here to help you make the right choices.
