The Amsterdam University of the Arts (AHK) is one of the Netherlands' premier schools for the arts located in the heart of the Dutch capital of Amsterdam. The Conservatorium van Amsterdam, the Netherlands Film Academy, the Academy of Theatre and Dance, the Reinwardt Academy, the Academy of Architecture and the Breitner Academy together form the Amsterdam University of the Arts.

The University offers courses at bachelor and master level in the following subjects: fine art and design, music, film, theatre, dance, museology, arts education and architecture. Especially the degree programmes at master level are taught in English and have an increasingly international student population.

Almost all programmes have a selection procedure: an audition, portfolio, or exam conducted and judged by faculty staff. For several bachelor courses we also offer prepatory courses.

Visit one of our open days and discover and experience the different kind of programmes.
