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.

During 22 November - 28 November Public Rietveld edits the front page.
The Gerrit Rietveld Academie is proud to present the new video portraits of selected graduation projects of 2021 as part of Rietveld Review(ed). With these portraits, we highlight and celebrate remarkable art projects from the next generation of artists.
The two-to-four-minute videos offer an accessible way to explore these intimate and personal art projects further and get to know the artists and designers behind the projects – something which might not have been possible for visitors amidst the plethora of art works in the exhibition, or because the art projects could only receive a limited number of visitors due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
From 24 November until 3 December 2021, every day a new video will be launched on the online channels of the Rietveld Academie.
