Are you considering applying, or just wondering what it’s like to study at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie? Friday Januari 30, the Gerrit Rietveld Academie has an Open Day, between 10 -18 hrs.
During the Open Day, you’re welcome to walk around trough the different departments, ask questions at the teachers and students and experience the atmosphere of the academy. There is no need to apply for the Open Day, just stop by and have a look around!

Open Consultations

During the Open Day you also have the opportunity to show your portfolio to one of our teachers during the open consultations from 10.00 am - 05.00 pm. Booking an appointment is not needed, but you have to register through apply@rietveldacademie.nl so you can be provided with information about the procedure during the open day consultations. General information about the consultation


All departments present their own programme. Make sure to visit the following:

11 AM (and then every hour) - Inter-architecture, room 209
Pecha Kucha presentations and a scientific experiment ‘Haptic perception through space’.

2 PM, 4 PM, 3.30 PM + 5 PM – Glass department
Blowing sessions. Make a unique personal design for an object in glass, which will be made on the spot!

Under the skilled supervision by our specially trained students you can make a mold for glass-blowing in two steps.

Step 1: take some clay from the heap and form it into a mold. Our students and staff will explain the process and help you to make it.
Step 2: the mold will then be blown in with hot glass.

You can pick up the piece after it cooled down.
