Stockholm University of the Arts was established in 2014 when DOCH the School of Dance and Circus, the University College of Opera, and the Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts merged.


  • We have Bachelor’s programmes with many different specialisations. A Bachelor’s programme is a three-year programme, and you do not need to have studied at a university college or university beforehand.
  • We have one-year and two-year Master’s programmes with many different specialisations.
  • Stockholm University of the Arts offers research education within the arts. The research education is four years of fulltime studies. As a doctoral student you are employed at the university.
  • We offer courses outside of the study programmes. These courses are usually for people who work in one of our fields and want to explore an area in more detail.


Artistic research comprises a broad spectrum of investigative and reflective practices, methods and concepts with artistic roots in architecture, visual art, circus, dance, design, film, fine art, photography, arts and crafts, choreography, creative writing, media, music, opera, performance and performing arts. New knowledge is created by means of artistic practice being orientated towards research issues and generating concepts, processes, artefacts and performances.

Student Life

Student clubs

Student unions are politically and religiously independent, non-profit organisations whose primary purpose is to monitor and promote student interests and concerns and represent them in all matters relating to student life, including education, development, health and safety, equality and student welfare.

Through the Student Union students are able to influence their education and the university´s orientation. Unions also offers a forum for social activities, debates and parties.
