The Academy of Arts in Tromsø is a department at UiT The Arctic University of Norway. The BFA programme was established in 2007, our international MFA programme started in 2012, and since 2013 the Academy has also hired PhD students in artistic research.

As the Academy accepts only a small number of students into its study programmes each year, the study environment is personal and intimate, allowing the students a lot of freedom and study time to develop their individual projects and interests.

Our students and (guest) teachers are recruited internationally, which mirrors the cosmopolitan atmosphere of the small, yet culturally vibrant city of Tromsø. Furthermore, it is the department’s interest to maintain a high international level while taking the geopolitical and cultural characteristics into account, which are provided by the Academy’s location in the north of the country.
