Each Piet Zwart Masters programme is competitive. Applicants are accepted on a rolling basis and therefore early submissions are encouraged.

The Piet Zwart Institute houses the international Master programs of the Willem de Kooning Academy at Hogeschool Rotterdam. Since 1999 it has been dedicated to promoting study and research in the fields of art, design and art education. Named after the pioneering Dutch designer, Piet Zwart, who worked experimentally across media and contexts, the Institute offers a rich combination of in-depth specialisation and interdisciplinary exchange within an intimate learning environment.

We have four master programmes: Fine Art, Interior Architecture: Research + Design, Master Media Design: Experimental Publishing and Lens-Based, and the Master Education in Arts. All are founded on a shared interest in the complex social, cultural and political underpinnings of each discipline. Through a uniquely tailored curriculum combining collective learning, intensive individual tutorial support, practice-based research and theoretical inquiry, our programmes educate young professionals who have a critically reflective and imaginative approach to their work.
