Welcome new students!

To quickly feel at home at the KABK, you can participate in the Academy Wide Introduction Days. During the Introduction Days you will get to know the building, The Hague, and each other.

The Introduction Days for preparatory year, bachelor, and exchange students take place on Monday 21 and Tuesday 22 August. The Introduction Day for master students takes place on Wednesday 23 August. Once the programme for the Introduction Days is known, we will communicate it on this page.

Useful pre-departure information about the academy and The Hague are available on this website. We also recommend taking a look on the website of Study in The Hague and The Hague International Centre. Keep an eye on your personal and KABK email for further information and updates.


If you are planning on attending the Introduction Days, it is important you register prior. We will send you an e-mail with form to register in August.

3 reasons to participate in the Introduction Days

  1. You already know your fellow students before your studies begin.
  2. You won’t get lost on your first day at the Academy; the Academy building becomes your second home.
  3. It's free, food is provided and there's no better way to start your studies!

Department specific Introduction

Next to the general Introduction Days, each department organises their own intro sessions. Your department coordinator will contact you about this programme separately.
