Teaching structure

Educational methods

Practical projects are the main assignments of almost all courses. The projects can be self-directed or guided by a predefined theme. We encourage curiosity, self-reliance and an open mind in defining projects. Other assignments often run parallell to these projects, and may involve reading literature, written assignments, making presentations and contributing to discussions. Instruction will be given in the form of lectures, seminars, individual tuitorials, group tuition, workshops and study trips.

As a student at the Academy of Design and Crafts you will learn in a friendly and inspirational atmosphere. Our teachers have specialized competence in various design and art fields and will guide and support you in your studies. You will have access to fully equipped workshops where specialized technicians will help you out. You will have a work place of your own in one of the studios of the school, and you will have the university’s Art Library close at hand in the school building.

Teaching will be conducted in English. Individual tutorials can be given in Swedish.
