Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm, Sweden

Studies in Fine Arts for
Visiting and Exchange Students

( 18-30 ECTS Credits )

Students from schools that the RIA has an exchange agreement with can apply for an exchange period ranging from 3 months to 1 year. Students coming from schools that don’t have an exchange agreement with the RIA, or students who have recently graduated from a comparable institution, can apply to the RIA as a visiting student.

Exchange and visiting students are provided with a studio space, a supervising professor and will be assigned to a professor group with a mixed group of students. They will have access to the college’s workshops and the elective course components within fine arts. Knowledge of Swedish is not necessary, but proper command of English is required to take full advantage of the studies.

The academic year is divided into an autumn semester (beginning of September–mid January) and a spring semester (mid January–beginning of June).
