Educational and professional objectives

Propaedeutic year

The assessment in the second semester, the propaedeutic year assessment, may lead to a binding negative study advice. Referral indicates that the student can be advised to enrol in another study programme in or outside of the academy.

The student needs to master the following competences during this phase of the programme:

 • Creative ability: The student is able to independently apply the acquired skills and knowledge to the production of his work

 • Capacity for critical reflection: The student is able to reflect on his work and can evaluate its quality and effectiveness.

• Capacity for growth and innovation: The student acquires new knowledge, skills and insights and is able to apply them on a theoretical and practical level.

• Organisational competence: The student is able to develop his own work process and is capable of documenting and archiving his work.

• Situational awareness: The student has a wide interest in social and cultural developments and is able to recognise different visions of designing.

• Collaborative competence: The student is able to realise his goals in consultation with others.

The propaedeutic year competences are reached with the help of the previously described study programme elements. Because of a revision of the programme, the courses are being re-written at the time of assembling this Study Guide. As soon as the descriptions are available they will be published on the KABK website. This also applies to the study programme elements of the subsequent years.
