About de Theaterschool
De Theaterschool is a faculty of the Amsterdam School of the Arts. It encompasses fourteen courses of higher professional education (HBO) in dance, theatre and scenography, theatre technical arts and production. Each course upholds its own set of aims and objectives, its own curriculum and its own distinctive ambience. The courses are full-time and take an average of four years to complete. A study at de Theaterschool is rather demanding in regard to time input and physical commitment. It is a fact, however, that those who do get admitted engage in their study with heart and soul.
The language of the Theatre Department is Dutch. In order to function up to the mark in the lessons, foreign students are required to learn, speak, write and read Dutch during their first year of study.
