The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts’ Schools of Visual Arts fall under the auspices of the Danish Ministry for Culture and offer two degree programmes: a three-year Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) and a three-year Master of Fine Arts (MFA) programme
Students must be prepared to undertake full-time studies and to actively take part in the various practical and theoretical parts of the studies – often in close co-operation with fellow students.
The objective of the two study programmes is to develop the students’ artistic practice and prepare them for a subsequent career as professional artists.
This is done through one-on-one tutorials, extensive instruction in technical, practical and theoretical aspects of art, and through collective discussions and critical analysis of the work done by students and by other artists.
The official academic regulations are available here:
The three-year BFA study programme qualifies the student for the international MFA study programme with the four departments: The School of Sculpture Charlottenborg; The School of Painting; The School of Conceptual and Contextual Practises and The School of Media Arts.
The MFA study programme takes place at one of the four departments; students can switch from one school to another during their studies. The MFA study programme is concluded by a final assessment of each student’s contribution to that year’s AFGANG (MFA Degree Show).
The BFA and MFA study programmes are both supported by the Institute for Art, Writing and Research, which offers teaching on art theory and art history. The Institute is also responsible for the overall artistic and academic research done at the Schools of Visual Arts.
During their BFA and MFA studies, students can draw on a range of different laboratories: workshops that make facilities and materials available to students. Here, you can study and engage in actual artistic practices. Part of the teaching will take place at these laboratories.
The academy aims to give students the knowledge and qualifications required for them to work professionally as visual artists upon graduation.
In addition to a career as a practicing artist, this includes other professions such as teaching, organisational work, consultancy work, design etc.
The academy embraces diversity. Persons with functional impairments and mental disabilities are very welcome to apply.
Most of the teaching at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts takes place in old and listed buildings that do not always offer ideal opportunities for unassisted access, e.g. for wheelchair users.
For this reason we ask applicants with impairments to notify us of their particular requirements so that we can make the necessary arrangements and plan teaching activities accordingly.

HOW TO APPLY
The Schools of Visual Arts only receive applications digitally. Like all the other art education programmes under the auspices of the Danish Ministry of Culture, the Schools of Visual Arts use the recruitment system Varbi as its online application portal.
When you want to apply for admission to one of these education programmes for the first time, Varbi will ask you to set up a user profile that includes your name and email address. Having set up this user profile you will be able to see and edit your applications, and the portal includes an inbox where you will find our messages to you. You can use your user profile again for subsequent applications, and you can use it to apply to several different Danish art education programmes simultaneously.
The application process involves a range of questions that you must answer. You will be asked to upload various documentation and images/video files of your works. Read more about the guidelines for electronic submission of works here. If you need a break while working on your application, you can pause your application and continue later. It is very important that you complete your application well in advance of the deadline: the system shuts down at midnight between 24 February and 25 February (00:00 sharp) – even if you are still working on your application.
As soon as you have submitted your application you will be redirected to a new screen in order to pay the application fee. If you do not wish to pay the application fee at that particular time, simply close the screen. Your Varbi application overview will then inform you that you still need to pay the fee. Please note that your application will only be processed if we have received payment before the application deadline expires.

The Schools of Visual Arts comprise four MFA schools. If you are admitted, you shall select the schools you want to be enrolled at in order of priority. Your placement in one of the four schools depends on the number of seats available in the schools. You may therefore risk being placed in a school that you do not have as the first priority.
The four MFA schools are:
- The School of Sculpture Charlottenborg under professor Martin Erik Andersen
- The School of Painting under professor Ferdinand Ahm Krag
- The School of Media Arts under professor Angela Melitopoulos
- The School of Conceptual and Contextual Practices under professor Carla Zaccagnini
ASSESSMENT AND REPLY
All applicants are assessed on the basis of a specific artistic evaluation of their own artistic work. The committee’s assessment places emphasis on aspects such as the originality of the works submitted for consideration and the applicant’s potential for artistic and professional development.
The assessment is carried out by a committee that comprises the rector or head of institute, all professors as the Schools of Visual Arts, a student representative from the MFA programme and one external examiner.
The assessment process spans four rounds: an initial sorting, two so-called plenary rounds where committee members assess and discuss the applicants, and a final round of interviews.
The committee assesses the individual applications and will select twelve to fifteen applicants who will be invited to attend an interview. Among other things, these interviews will be used to help the committee assess the applicants’ motivation and their ability to place their own works within a wider perspective. The interviews take place in late April.
Each applicant will be notified of the result of their assessment via Varbi as soon as the entire assessment process is completed. Applicants who are not admitted will be given an indication of how far into the process they progressed. No additional comments on the results of your assessment will be offered.
If you are admitted to the MFA programme, you must inform us about any previously completed courses/programme modules from other higher education degree programmes for which it must be assumed that credit transfers will be granted.
The study administration at the Schools of Visual Arts provides answers to a range of general frequently asked questions about the MFA admission process here.
