Artistic, intellectual and personal growth At ArtEZ, education is focused on students’ artistic, intellectual and personal growth. They are trained in a professional role that closely matches their talent, personality and ambition and they receive support from lecturers who have more than earned their spurs in professional practice. Because of this individual approach, students are well prepared for their future careers as arts and culture professionals.
The ArtEZ Academy of Art & Design has 42 active student and staff exchange partners, 35 of which they participate with in the Erasmus+ program. They currently have 6 Non-European partners. 20 % international students.
ArtEZ is rooted in the eastern part of The Netherlands. Located in between the urban agglomeration of the west and the Ruhr Valley of Germany. Because of this location it has strong regional ties.

research activity and main areas
Art and art education are in a constant state of development. Fresh knowledge and insights are essential here. The ArtEZ professorships add to this process by means of research and theory. Through applied research, students on the Master’s courses also contribute to the development and availability of knowledge. The four ArtEZ professorships form the connection between the international world of the arts and arts education at ArtEZ. Through applied research they contribute to the development and modernisation of our curricula while augmenting the theory that benefits the process of production. ArtEZ students and lecturers are involved as much as possible in this research. For instance, they participate in conducting it and also attend symposia, lectures and workshops. The professors work closely with the ArtEZ Master’s courses; this generates both exchange of knowledge and joint research programmes. External co-operation is also organised that involves, for example, universities, the knowledge networks of professors from different arts institutes and other research partners. The four professorships are: > Fashion Design > Art, Culture & Economy > Theory in the Arts > Education in Arts and Culture
