During 'Goedemorgen Gerrit' you will get the chance to find out about the different possibilities to study Art & Design at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. You can discover more about the Bachelor's programme, the Orientation Course and the Preparatory Course

Please note; this event for prospective students will be in Dutch. We advise our English speaking guests to join the Open Day on Friday 29 January 2021.

Our next 'Goedemorgen Gerrit' will be quite different than usual because of the measures to avoid the spread of Covid-19. Instead of an informative morning at the academy, we organise a Virtual Goedemorgen Gerrit on 21 November from 10.30 until 12.30 hrs. Registration through the form is now closed, please mail public[at] if you wish to join last minute.

29 January 2021

The OPEN DAY is usually the perfect moment to wander around our buildings and have a look at all departments, including the Preparatory Course, Orientation Course and DOGtime (part-time bachelor education). The Open Day will take place on 29 January 2021.

Due to the Covid-19 measures, the Open Day in January 2021 will look different than usual. We are now working out various scenarios. Register here to stay informed about dates and programs of Open Days in 2020-2021.
