RESEARCH WEEK OCTOBER 2021

Two Research Weeks are organized annually at the Academy. Within these weeks, research by students is central. The Research Weeks make an explicit connection between research and education, which gives students the opportunity to get acquainted with research(ers) and the research base within the Academy. During the Research Weeks they can choose from various research classes.

These research classes - organized, prepared and supervised by researchers from the Academy and / or by externally recruited researchers - are experimental and reflective in nature, and start from a thematic, but not discipline-related question. In this way they provide added value to the permanent curriculum and are complementary to it. They are non-studio-bound, but start from current research, with a broad scope of substantive and / or thematic perspectives, so that a relevant research experience can take place for every student.

The first Research Week of the academic year 21-22 will be organized in the week before the autumn break (from 25 till 39 October 2021) and coincides with the ARTICULATE Research Days. 

PROGRAMME

PRACTICAL

For whom?
For Master students of the Academy who included 'Research Class 1' (3STPT) in their study programme. There will be no theory lessons nor studio work in these weeks. This allows participating masters to make time and space for new experiences.

Information session
In order to make an informed choice from the program, there will be an information session for each research class in September. For more information click on the research class above, and check Intranet for Students for the practical details.

How and when to register?
Register from Monday 27 September 2021 (12:00), via Intranet for Students.
You can register online based on the 'first comes first served' principle. Once the choice for a specific research class has been registered, that choice can no longer be changed by the student. Research classes that are full can no longer be chosen.
