The Rietveld Academie is not a school. Schools expect the right answers; an art academy, by contrast, expects good questions, that stretch the limits of expectation and perception. We train students to master the tool of imagination, which makes them specialists in sensory intelligence: an essential asset in society.
All full-time students follow a general first year called Basicyear and choose a specialisation for in-depth study during the following three years: Architectural Design, designLAB, Fashion, Graphic Design, Jewellery - linking bodies, TXT (Textile), Ceramics, Fine Arts, The Large Glass, Beeld en Taal, Photography or VAV - moving image.
The Rietveld Academie also offers a part-time Bachelor's programme called DOGtime with two specialisations: Unstable Media and Expanded Painting. Besides this, we offer preparatory trajectories: the Preparatory Course and the Orientation Course and Rietveld op Proef. Master’s degree programmes are offered at the Sandberg Instituut.
