The Orientation Course still has an extra admission round on 16 September! To sign up for that (but be quick!), check https://rietveldacademie.nl/en/page/956/apply-contact 

The course is an excellent and exciting way of getting to both get to know the academy and preparing for applying to a Bachelor course at an art academy afterwards. 

The Orientation Course is held over 25 Saturdays, starting 2 October. The age group is 16 to approx. 50 years old. During the course, you can find out whether you want to pursue studying art and design. Orientation course students can attend a first round of admissions to assess whether they are ready for the Gerrit Rietveld Academie entrance examination.
