... that we also offer a Double Degree programme?

Double degree? What’s that?

At the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK) it is possible to pursue two bachelor degrees at the same time. Highly motivated Fine Arts students can combine their Bachelor Fine Arts programme with the Bachelor Arts, Media and Society at Leiden University.

Upon successful completion of this four-year trajectory, students are awarded two bachelor's degrees! A higher professional education BA degree (KABK) and a University BA degree (Leiden).

... you can also customise your bachelor studies at the KABK!

Customise studies? How?

At the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK) you can curate 20% of your own curriculum. This part of the curriculum is called Individual Study Track (IST). The IST allows you to focus on the discovery and development of your own fascinations and preferences and your personal artistic attitude. IST is an excellent opportunity for you to discover your personal potential and ambitions and customise your studies accordingly. The KABK has a wide offer of IST Labs that accommodate you in your ambitions but you also get the chance to develop your own projects.

... that students work on practical assignments and applied research projects for private companies, non-profit organisations, and government agencies?

Through these partnerships, we seek to expand the opportunities offered to our students to connect with fields outside the academy. Students have the opportunity to collaborate with clients on real-world projects that give them relevant job experiences and prepare them for a successful career in the world of art and design.

...students with a Dutch Bachelor’s or Master’s degree get a 50% discount on institutional fees?

Students who have already obtained a Dutch Bachelor’s or Master’s degree (known in Dutch as stapelaars – consecutive-degree students), are eligible for a 50% discount on their institutional fees when taking a second degree at the same or a lower level at the Royal Academy of Art The Hague (KABK).

The KABK sees consecutive-degree students as a very interesting group. Experience has taught us that students with more life experience and working knowledge make interesting art and design students. They get more out of their degree programme, which allows them to make a special contribution to their discipline and society.

  • The discount is available to new intake students who have already completed a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree programme at a Dutch institution, the so-called stapelaars.
  • The previously obtained degree is not an art degree (not in the field of the Arts)
  • The measure applies to students to whom the institutional tuition fees apply.
  • The reduced rate for the academic year 2022/2023 is €3.208, this is a 50% discount on the full institutional fee of €6.416
