Congratulations! The admission board has (conditionally) admitted you to one of the course years of the four year full-time or five year part-time Art or Design course of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie for the academic year 2020/2021. NOTE: if you are 'conditionally' admitted, your admission will only become final once you meet the specific condition(s) formulated in the result e-mail.

Normally, the academic year starts with a general introduction for new students on the last Thursday in August. In view of the situation regarding Corona, we will have to decide whether, and how, we can organize this event this year. Students will receive more information about this in due course. Further information regarding the first classes, registration, payment tuition fees, curriculum, etcetera will be sent to you in due time.
