About

Education

ArtEZ provides a coherent range of preparatory courses, Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes in visual art, architecture, fashion, design, music, theatre, creative writing, dance and art education for more than 3000 students in Arnhem, Enschede and Zwolle.

Research

Research is a recurring subject within the programmes. Master’s students conduct applied research in the last year of their programme.

Bachelor’s students can choose to apply for the Honours Programme in addition to their regular studies in order to gain further theoretical knowledge or to perform research. Lecturers and students are involved as much as possible in the research projects of the professorships. Students reap the rewards of this research and innovation focus.

This is exemplified by the School of Dance working with an innovative training programme that significantly reduces the risk of injuries.

Career

From fashion designers to musicians, from choreographers to architects, more and more artists are establishing themselves as independent entrepreneurs or opting for mixed professional practice. Employed graduates are also expected to demonstrate entrepreneurial behaviour.

Services

Student services

The Student Affairs Department will help you with anything you may need to organise your studies and advises you on registration and enrolment, visas and insurance.

Housing services

In Holland, students usually do not live on campus but have their own room. Therefore ArtEZ doesn't have its own student dormitories and cannot provide accommodation for students.

Library services

The books published by ArtEZ Press help stimulate research and theory development in the various art education disciplines. The publications offer the opportunity to demonstrate existing knowledge and skills in art, culture, and education. Some books may serve as teaching material, both nationally and internationally.

Why ArteZ is not for me

Very high quality of education but lacking in organisational skill

Studying Crossmedia Design at the AKI ArtEZ
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

Crossmedia Design at the AKI ArtEZ is a very broad study in which you get the right amount of space to develop personally as well as in the work you make. It's a school which has a village culture, as the school is very small, and everything is very informal. This makes contact with the tutors great and to the point. Gradually you are given more and more freedom and longer...
