Will you be an innovator in the field of interior architecture?

The Master's Interior Architecture at ArtEZ welcomes motivated applicants with multidisciplinary skills, who are willing to take further the entire field of interior architecture. Students who understand that what worked well in the past is not sufficient for the future – and that this precarious future is too large to confront with existing methods.

  • To be able to enrol for the programme, you need:

    • A Bachelor’s degree, preferably relating to interior architecture (such as Spatial Design or a (TU) Engineering Bachelor and other related Bachelor degrees). Applicants with a Bachelor's degree in another discipline are also invited to apply: the admissions committee will determine the relevance of previous studies and work experience.
    • A portfolio, a letter of motivation and a CV (see below).
    • Successful completion of the entrance examination (see below).
