Royal Academy of Art The Hague
The Royal Academy of Art, The Hague is an academy for Fine Arts and Design and offers bachelors, masters, postgraduate courses, PhDs in close cooperation with the University Leiden and preparatory courses.

The Royal Academy of Art trains students to become self-aware artists and designers, able to make a meaningful contribution to their discipline and to society by means of their passion, deep expertise and experimental approach.

Research plays an important role in all curricula offered by the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague. Artists and designers who have graduated from our academy position themselves as research-based artists and relate as such to their discipline and to society. During the course of study students will consistently be confronted with their environment. We invite the art world into the academy and search for confrontations with our audience. But we also engage in relations with partners who operate outside the cultural field. These forms of collaboration are an important link between the academy and society and require the entrepreneurial skills of our students. The Royal Academy of Art prepares its students for an international professional practice. For this reason we use both English and Dutch as the language of instruction. We maintain contacts with institutions all over the world. Students participate in exchange programmes and internships abroad and we annually welcome many students who study at our academy for the duration of one or two semesters. This international orientation is reflected in the composition of our academic community. With students coming from more than 60 countries every student learns to think internationally and interculturally as a matter of course.

The Royal Academy of Art, The Hague has at its disposal a diversity of workspaces covering a variety of different technique  and new technologies. These include existing and more traditional techniques, but there is also ample room for the latest state-of-the-art equipment, including a 3D printer, a 3D scanner, a portal milling machine and a risograph. We aim to facilitate every different technique and technology, always with a focus on the potential for student use. We have our own shop in the centre of The Hague where students and alumni can gain experience in selling their work. The academy covers approximately 17,000 square meters of floor area at the heart of The Hague.
