After graduation

After graduation

The Fine Art course in Enschede prepares you for a life as an independent visual artist with your own professional practice, in which you will be able to create autonomous work as well as commissioned work, alone or in collaboration with others. You can also choose to continue your studies with a national or international master course.  

Title and diploma 

After successfully completing the Fine Art course, you may use the title Bachelor of Arts (BA).  

This course may be found in the Dutch Central Register of Courses in Higher Education (CROHO) under code 39110. The formal name of the course, under which it is known in CROHO, is Bachelor of Fine Art. This CROHO name will appear on your diploma.  

Starting work 

The professional practice of a visual artist nowadays goes beyond the boundaries of their own discipline. As an artist, you can also work as a filmmaker, photographer, curator, organiser or critic. In addition, your creative input and autonomous thinking will be valuable in projects in which you collaborate with planners, architects or scientists, for example.  

Continuing your studies? 

After graduation, you can take a national or international master course, such as the Master of Arts in Fine Art and Design.
If you want to obtain a first-degree teaching qualification, choose the Tailor-Made BA Fine Art and Design in Education course at ArtEZ. This course is offered in both Zwolle and Arnhem.
