Gerrit Rietveld Academie

The Gerrit Rietveld Academie is a university of applied sciences for Fine Arts and Design. We offer one Bachelor's degree programme and four Master's programmes. From academic year 2014-2015 the Academie will be offering the Bachelor's degree programme Art & Design (formerly the two programmes Fine Arts and Design). This combination expresses our vision concerning art education in which autonomous and applied art form a single entity. This degree programme has twelve specialisations. All students follow a general first year (the Basicyear) and then choose one of these specialisations for in-depth study in the following three years. The Rietveld Academie also offers a part-time Bachelor's programme. The basis year of the part-time Bachelor's programme lasts two years and is followed by three years of in-depth study. Read More
