The Rietveld Academie also offers a part-time Bachelor's programme called DOGtime with two specialisations: IDUM (Interaction Design Unstable Media) and Fine Arts. Besides this, we offer two preparatory courses: the Preparatory Year and the Orientation Year. Master’s degree programmes are offered at the Sandberg Instituut.
The academy has twenty workshops at its disposal. Some of these are for general use and others are specific to particular departments. The workshops enable students to experiment with different techniques and materials and provide the opportunity to learn to use professional equipment. They form the very heart of the academy.
