The Gerrit Rietveld Academie is an international university of applied sciences for Fine Arts and Design in Amsterdam (NL). It is home to a close-knit, international community of students from across the world. Students and teachers jointly create a learning environment that brings together thinking and doing and where unexpected, innovative ideas are born.
This frontpage is weekly curated by a different student, department or alumnus presenting work in progress or in its final phase.

All full-time students follow a general first year called Basicyear and choose a specialisation for in-depth study during the following three years: Inter-Architecture, designLAB, Fashion, Graphic Design, Jewellery, 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: 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.
