The Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in The Hague has transformed its annual open day into a 5-day online event in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions. The KABK online open days take place from Tuesday, January 19 to Saturday, January 23, 2021. The KABK offers an insight into multiple study programme departments; a Preparatory Year, 7 bachelor, 7 master and a PhD track in the Arts in collaboration with Leiden University.

Throughout a variety of online activities, we will provide you more information about the different departments, and outline what makes studying at the KABK so unique.

Each department presents itself on a specific day, offering a variety of online activities, from online presentations, performances to live Q&A’s with tutors, teachers and recent graduates. You will get the opportunity to talk to our student ambassadors to find out about their experiences at the KABK and their lives in The Hague.

In addition, several general information talks will be held throughout the week. During these sessions you will be able to take a sneak peek into our facilities, ask all your practical questions about our application procedure, student finance, accommodation, residence permits and everything else you need to know about student life and education at the KABK.
