Study programmes at Bergen Academy of Art and Design
Bergen Academy of Art and Design seeks creative, motivated and thinking people wanting to develop their personal skills in the area of art and design.
Studies at KHiB are based on and aim to promote:
- Personal development
- Professional integrity
- Interdisciplinary approach
- Responsibility for your own learning
- Concern for the wider community
- On the job training
Admission to KHiB is based on actual abilities. In other words your application will be decided on the basis of the work you submit, on the outcome of an admission test and a personal interview.
Applicants to the Academy come from a large number of schools and with widely varying practical experience. Some come to us with general qualifications, some have a specific practical training, and others have attended a university or college.
For admission to the MA programmes a BA or other relevant education corresponding to 180 ECTS credits is required.
No tuition fees
KHiB is part of the public education system in Norway, which means that students do not pay tuition fees. Norwegian students may have financial support from the Norwegian State Educational Loan Fund (NSELF). International students should be prepared to provide funding to cover living expenses and material from their home countries.
Through the national Quota Scheme, KHiB is able to offer financial support to three MA students from Central and Eastern Europe or developing countries. Support is given in the form of grants and loans. When the students return to their home countries, the loan part is converted into a grant. There is no specific application procedure for support under the quota scheme. The allocation is directly linked to the MA application process, and KHiB makes a selection among the eligible applicants.
