The Royal Academy of Art The Hague is an academy for Fine Arts and Design and offers bachelors, masters, preparatory courses, a postgraduate course and a PhD programme in close cooperation with Leiden University.

The Royal Academy of Art trains students to become self-aware artists and designers, able to make a meaningful contribution to their discipline and to society by means of their passion, deep expertise and experimental approach.

Research plays an important role in all curricula offered by the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague. Artists and designers who have graduated from our academy position themselves as research based artists and relate as such to their discipline and to society. During the course of study students will consistently be confronted with their environment. We invite the art world into the academy and search for confrontations with our audience. But we also engage in relations with partners who operate outside the cultural field. These forms of collaboration are an important link between the academy and society and require the entrepreneurial skills of our students.

The Royal Academy of Art prepares its students for an international professional practice. For this reason we use both English and Dutch as the language of instruction. We maintain contacts with institutions all over the world. Students participate in exchange programmes and internships abroad and we annually welcome many students who study at our academy for the duration of one or two semesters. This international orientation is reflected in the composition of our academic community. With students coming from more than 60 countries every student learns to think internationally and interculturally as a matter of course.
