Study profile School for Young Talent

The School for Young Talent (School voor Jong Talent, SvJT) is a unique institute established by the University of the Arts, The Hague. The school welcomes pupils in primary education (class 7 and 8 - only for dance & music) and students in secondary education, who would like to progress to the Royal Academy of Art, the Royal Conservatoire or the Conservatoire's Dance Department.

The school offers programmes at three levels of the Dutch school system (HAS, HAVO, and VWO), combined with classical dance training or preparatory education in music, or fine art and design. The SvJT is a small-scale programme in which individual attention plays a central role.

Students following the art component of the School for Young Talent attend half-day classes at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK) at least four times a week. The regular school subjects are taught at the school, housed within the Royal Conservatoire building in Amare. Here, the art component students, attend combined classes together with the dance and music students and follow the school subjects just as they are given in other Dutch schools.
