The Postgraduate Course in Industrial Design is a two-year programme taught in English, for designers who want to use applied design to make a conscious contribution to the world of today and tomorrow. For designers who are keen to hone their creativity in order to work within a complex interplay of factors and find a ‘solution’ in the form of a distinctive and elegant design. For designers looking to operate as professionals on the industrial playing field; who want to investigate it, to question it critically and help to give it shape.

The Postgraduate Course in Industrial Design unites the technical and production aspects of industrial design with its substantive, cultural and social significance.

The Postgraduate Course in Industrial Design has been taught since 1950 at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK) and is the oldest recognised course in the field of Design and Industrial Design in the Netherlands. Prominent teachers and students include Gerrit Rietveld, Frans de La Haye and Renny Ramakers.

We are currently transforming this course into a two-year fulltime programme. Both the schedule and the condensed curriculum leave time for a professional practice. 

Please find more information about the steps of the Application Procedure and an overview of Tuition Fees.
