Applications are open for the International Master of Fine Arts program at the Trondheim Academy of Fine Art (KiT) starting in autumn 2020.

There are no tuition fees, also for non-EU/EEA students. Teaching language of all courses is English.

The Trondheim Academy of Fine Art is a department at NTNU, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. KIT has the unique situation of being inside one of Norway’s largest universities frequented by 40,000 students and over 8,000 employees. Being a new type of Art School offers exciting opportunities of cross pollination, bridging Art and Science. Students are encouraged to blur the boundaries between diverse modes of knowledge production and practice. KiT's strategic research areas in Art and Ocean and Art and Technology explore the potentials of artistic involvement and collaboration with renowned partners from both, science and technology as well as the world of art and culture.

The International MFA program at Trondheim Academy of Fine Art (KiT) is a two-year program made for artists and artistic researchers. Together, students and faculty at KiT set out to redefine the role of art in society today, engaging in societal and environmental challenges, modes of trans-disciplinary collaboration and experimentation to further knowledge transfer and social change.

Students in the International MFA program have a studio space and access to university fabrication workshops and media facilities. Each student is assigned two professors for individual supervision.

Current teaching faculty comprises artists and educators working in forensic architecture, cosmopolitics, material practices, painting and beyond, art and common space, performance and pop culture, artistic entrepreneurship, expanded screen practices and AI.

Graduates from the MFA program are encouraged to apply for the new Phd program in Artistic Research at KiT.
