We encourage an international focus: many of our students are from abroad. That is why this bachelor's programme is taught fully in English. This means that English is the language we use during classes. Instruction and coaching in Dutch is possible in individual cases. It is important to get used to an international setting right from the start. This way you will also feel at home abroad and you will learn to get by as an designer all over the word.
During this Bachelor you will learn to reflect on your own work and that of others. You will develop your authenticity as a designer and discover your view of the world. It is fine to make mistakes. Better still: you have to make mistakes. Only by trial and error you will be able to master the designer's craft. By carrying out experiments and starting afresh you will create you own style, your signature. You will learn how to develop and protect your authenticity as a designer. You will often work with your fellow students in order to learn to function as a member of an interdisciplinary team.
You can also choose your own direction, independent of a any specific medium. In that case you combine various majors. In your fourth year you will carry out a joint final exam assignment as well as an independent exam project.
