The MFA study programme trains artists to be independent, active contributors to the field of contemporary art. The programme aims to foster a critical engagement with the questions related to an artist’s individual practice, as well as provide contextualisation, dialogue and challenge in a supportive environment. The Oslo National Academy of the Arts offers excellent workshops and production facilities, which provides stimulating conditions for artists interested in experimentation and developing their practice.

Duration: two years, full time studies (120 credits)
Free tuition for international students apart from a small administrative fee

There are five strands to the Master’s programme:
–independent work, with a focus on studio work and individual supervision
–group critique, in which the work is discussed collectively
–practical and theoretical seminars/workshops, including courses and study trips addressing various themes
–writing practice, including art-related writing and publication
–exhibition practice in the school’s galleries or at other venues and sites
