Tradition, innovation and experiment come together in the courses offered at the Royal Academy of Art (KABK). We prepare students for a professional career, offering the knowledge, skills and attitude needed.

Our students work independently and are given complex assignments, which prepare them for working individually or collectively as a fine artist or designer when they finish their course.

The KABK offers the following courses:
