The recently published 2017 Master's Guide reveals that the DAI Art Praxis (Dutch Art Institute) master's degree programme run by ArtEZ Institute of the Arts has been rated the very best master's course of all the Dutch Universities and Universities of Applied Sciences. Along with the typography workshop master's (official name: Master of Typography), it has received the highest rating, putting it among the top Dutch master's programmes according to the 2017 Master's Guide.
ArtEZ is increasingly focusing on research within the arts. This translates to more high-quality master's programmes. In addition to the two top degree programmes listed, ArtEZ also offers master's in Architecture, Interior Architecture, Fashion Design, Fashion Strategy, Classical Music, Jazz & Pop, Pop Academy, MediaMusic, Education in Arts, Artist Educator, Music Therapy, Music Theatre and Theatre Practices.
Research choices are based on issues from practice. This means that ArtEZ is working on the quality of education for its students while art education adds ever more value to society. The Music Therapy master's in Enschede, which recently received funding and accreditation from Minister for Education Mariëtte Bussemaker, is a good example of this.
"Following the success of our undergraduate programmes, we have now also won recognition for our master's programmes" Marjolijn Brussaard (chair of the Executive Board) is happy with the result: "After the positive ratings for our bachelor's degree programmes in the HBO Guide (for Universities of Applied Sciences), it is nice to see that some of our master's programmes are also rated among the Netherlands' best. All our efforts in terms of quality education and innovation, with support from within the organisation, again appear to be bearing fruit."
About the Master's Guide The Master's Guide is published annually and rates programmes based on student satisfaction as revealed by the National Student Survey and expert assessments from accreditations by the NVAO (Dutch-Flemish Accreditation Organisation). According to the Master's Guide, top degree programmes set themselves apart within their own disciplines and score 76 points or above, making them eligible for a quality mark.
