Studying in Ghent

The Ghent Academy is one of the oldest in Belgium. The Royal Academy of Fine Arts (Koninklijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten, or KASK) is one of 13 faculties of the University College Ghent, the largest independent college in Flanders and its third-largest institution for higher education. The University College Ghent is a member of the Ghent University Association, which supports close working relationships with Ghent University. In addition to visual and audiovisual arts, the University College Ghent also offers bachelor and master courses in drama, interior design and cultural management.
The KASK campuses, Bijloke and Kunsttoren, are at the epicenter of Ghent, the cultural capital of Flanders. This haven at the heart of the historic city is very welcoming to students. Ghent is very receptive to the international art scene. Just a stone's throw from the KASK campuses are the Vooruit arts centre, the S.M.A.K. (Municipal Museum of Contemporary Art) and the Higher Institute for Fine Arts (H.I.S.K.).
In addition to being imbedded in this artistically rich environment, KASK itself is a cultural actor, organizing exhibitions (including KIOSK), festivals (including the One Minutes Belgian Open film festival), weekly lectures and film presentations, and co-producing the international art magazine, A Prior (
All of this makes it easier for students to take an active role in the art and design world and establish careers of their own. KASKweek, a festive and public presentation of master projects, concludes each academic year. All the activities mentioned above are open to the public. As a prospective student, you are always welcome to sample the atmosphere and energy of KASK activities and meet our students and instructors.
