The Royal Academy of Fine Arts (KASK) and the Royal Conservatory constitute the school of arts of University College Ghent and Howest. The school brings talented and motivated students together with outstanding educators, active artists, designers and theorists in art and design from all over the world. The mission statement of the school defines its main tasks: development of the arts, education and research in an international perspective.

Our master’s programs are laboratories of work and ideas where instructors and promoters stimulate rather than direct their students. As a student, your own process is at the center. The varied range of artistic disciplines in the Royal Academy and the Royal Conservatory makes for mutually inspiring and relatively open training programs. As transdisciplinarity in the arts becomes ever more important, there is room for cross-fertilization in your training program. In addition, you will be introduced to some of the numerous theoretical and artistic research projects our lecturers are engaged in. The dissertation stimulates you to deliberately examine and formulate themes important to your work as an artist or a designer. We offer English master programs in the visual arts, audiovisual arts, drama and music. There are no differences in curricula, competences, learning outcomes or organization between the English programs and their Dutch counterparts.

We offer a varied range of postgraduate programmes: curatorial studies, digital storytelling, musical performance practice and soloist classical music. As from 2020–21 students can also apply for the English bachelor program of Digital Design and Development in Courtrai. Please find more information on

Our main campuses are at the epicenter of Ghent, the cultural capital of Flanders. Ghent is very receptive to the international art scene and is especially welcoming to students. In addition to being embedded in this artistically rich environment, the school itself is a cultural actor organizing exhibitions, concerts, festivals, weekly lectures and daily film screenings.
