HKU University of the Arts, Utrecht



The HKU University of the Arts, Utrecht), is at the heart of Utrecht's cultural and social life.  With over 4000 students, HKU is one of the largest schools of art in Europe.  We offer preparatory courses, bachelor and master programmes and research degrees in fine art, design, media, games and interaction, music, theatre and arts management.

Project offices maintain contact with the business community, the government, the non-profit sector and the media and cultural sector. Another task of the project offices is to find commissions for students, giving them the opportunity to work in professional practice.

Students are given many opportunities to prove themselves in practice. They may use the school’s concert hall, theatre and gallery, professional studios and workplaces.
