The Master Institute’s location in the south of the Netherlands, outside of the country’s dense urban core, allows for generous studio space and intense focus. ‘s-Hertogenbosch is one of the oldest Dutch cities and is known for its warm and relaxed atmosphere—a ‘Burgundian’ attitude that sets the region apart. The city’s rich history and natural beauty contribute to a reflective and inspiring study environment.
A broader perspective on theory and practice and a lively international exchange are made possible by the academy’s proximity to Germany and Belgium. North Brabant, the province in which ‘s-Hertogenbosch is located, is also the epicentre of contemporary Dutch design.
Students enjoy the advantages of ‘s-Hertogenbosch while being only a one-hour train ride away from the nation’s major cities such as Amsterdam and Rotterdam. In addition, London, Paris and all the other major European art capitals are less than two hours away either by train or by air.
