The School of Arts offers English-language master programmes in the visual arts, audiovisual arts and music. Each year, dozens of foreign students choose the master programmes of our faculty to continue their studies.

There are no differences in curricula, competencies, learning outcomes or organization between the English-language programmes and their Dutch-language counterparts. English-speaking candidates holding a master’s degree in music can also go in for the advanced master ‘soloist contemporary music’.... [-]
