About this program
Study a Bachelor's in Design in the Netherlands
If you are creative, curious, interested in experimenting with images and converting ideas into visual concepts, then the Bachelor of Design may well be the right programme for you. We educate talented and ambitious students to become experimental designers with a critical attitude. Our graduates are fully prepared for a career as a designer.
As a designer, you will be joining the creative industry, one of the most booming sectors in the Netherlands and abroad. Not only will you master the skills you need to become a professional designer, you will also develop a critical attitude, reflecting on your own work and that of your fellow students, and your own style and authenticity. Making mistakes is part of your development into being a professional designer. By experimenting, failing and starting again you will create your own style, your signature. You will also learn to develop and protect your authenticity as a designer. We provide you with the best facilities and counseling. You will work together with other students, to learn how to function in a (interdisciplinary) team. You learn to play with images and discover how your visual abilities can create solutions for questions in society.
