Sculpture, Glass & Ceramics in Ghent

Exchange Programme

Sculpture, Glass ans Ceramics is a combined study programme.  In the first year of the BA programme students explore the three disciplines by way of assignments and workshops. Gradually, they discover what best suits them and what they want to focus on. The programme encourages a wide spectrum of outcomes such as autonomous work, installations and performances and design oriented work.  

Curriculum

Programme for exchange students

The Visual Arts programme on campus Ghent offers academically oriented BA and MA degrees in Textile Design, Graphic Design and Fine Arts. Within Fine Arts students can either develop a hybrid fine arts practice or choose to focus on one of the following disciplines: Sculpture-Glass-Ceramics, Illustration, Painting, Mixed Media, Drawing-Printmaking. Exchange students are welcome to join the programme in 2BA or 3BA (first semester, second semester or a full year) or in MA (first semester). The study progress at your home university and the quality of your portfolio will determine your  enrolment in either BA or MA at LUCA.                          

The atelier will be the main part of your study programme at LUCA. Additionally, you can opt for drawing classes, English taught theoretical courses and Dutch classes (off campus). A welcome week with introductions to Flemish historical and contemporary art, the city of Gent and the campus is organised each semester.          

We can offer you an exchange programme of 30 ECTS credits. Detailed information about the offered course units can be found via http://onderwijsaanbod.luca-arts.be/opleidingen/e/SC_53767826.htm
