Incoming students and lecturers

KASK & Conservatory is an international campus. The English-language master’s degree programmes ensure an influx of students from around the world. Moreover, our school is part of the Erasmus University Charter Network. Every year tens of exchange students from Europe study here.

We also have bilateral agreements with non-European institutions, receiving non-European students to complete part of their studies at our school every year.

KASK & Conservatory is an art university college with programmes in the visual arts, design, audiovisual arts, drama and music. We think it is important to work in an interdisciplinary manner. The various study programmes allow a student to follow a major and to choose a different discipline as a minor. Exchange students are offered the same opportunity. Discuss with the instructors in your own institution which classes would be relevant to your curriculum. The internationalisation department can also help you with your final study programme once you are accepted as an exchange student.
