The Royal Danish Academy Of Fine Arts

The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Schools of Visual Arts is a higher arts education institution under the Ministry of Culture offering a six-year MFA programme.

Training at the Schools of Visual Arts demands independent work performed full time as well as a will to participate in close cooperation with other students in both practical and theoretical parts of the course of study.

The aim of the training is to develop the student's own artistic work in preparation for a subsequent professional occupation as an artist. This is achieved through thorough individual guidance, through extensive instruction in the technical, practical and theoretical disciplines and aspects, and especially by jointly going through, discussing and critically analysing the student's artistic production.
