Institution Plan 2013-2018

If you dream of becoming a professional artist you will need more than talent alone. Learning to be an artist demands full dedication, commitment and motivation on the part of both student and tutor. With high calibre instruction in all artistic disciplines, a clear vision of artistic practice, the presence of relevant partners in a truly international city, and education driven by exceptional and innovative research, the Amsterdam University of the Arts offers an environment that encourages motivated students to realise their full artistic potential.

Throughout the coming period, our main objective is to maintain our standards of excellence. The Institution Plan contains the ambitions for the years 2013-2018, expressed in four focal areas:

  • educational excellence and permanent pursuit of quality
  • every student as the artist of tomorrow
  • distinct position in the creative metropolis Amsterdam
  • research directed at education and the development of the profession
