School of Arts Ghent

Introduction

The Royal Academy of Fine Arts (KASK) and the Royal Conservatory constitute the School of Arts of University College Ghent. The school brings together talented and motivated students with outstanding educators, active artists, designers and theorists in art and design from all over the world. The mission statement of the school defines its main tasks: development of the arts, education and research in an international perspective.

The varied range of artistic disciplines in the School of Arts Ghent, makes for reciprocally inspiring and relatively open training programs. As transdisciplinarity in the arts becomes ever more important, there is room for cross-fertilization in your training program. In addition you will be introduced to some of the numerous theoretical and artistic research projects our lecturers are engaged in. The dissertation stimulates you to deliberately examine and formulate themes important to your work as an artist or a designer.

The School of Arts Ghent campuses are at the epicenter of Ghent, the cultural capital of Flanders. Ghent is very receptive to the international art scene en especially welcoming to students. In addition to being imbedded in this artistically rich environment, the school itself is a cultural actor, organizing exhibitions, concerts, festivals, weekly lectures and daily film screenings..., and co-producing the international art magazine A Prior.
