The Preparatory Year is a serious preparatory study program for the bachelor programs in Fine Arts or Design at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, and is aimed at learning how to react independently to assignments and reflect on your work with lecturers and fellow students, within the course program. Classes are taught by professional artists and designers and study hours amount to a total of 13 hours weekly. The course program consists of classes in fine arts, 3D & 2D design and getting acquainted with various media. A theory program is offered, and in the spring prep year students participate in the Studium Generale theory program. There will be regular visits to exhibitions and museums, and an excursion in November.

There will be evaluations twice a year: one in December/January and a final presentation mid April. Following the final evaluation, prep year students who attended all classes and completed the Prep Year successfully can directly enter into the Basic Year, the first year of study of the bachelor’s degree programs of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, but only if they have obtained a high school diploma giving entrance into a bachelor program.
The Prep Year offers elaborate information about national and international bachelor art programs. Discourses about the eventual choice of studies of prep year students will be held in March and April.
