Studies at KIT

Trondheim Academy of Fine Art (KIT) offers study programs in fine art, and is a department under the Faculty of Architecture and Design at the NTNU university

KIT is the only Norwegian art academy that exists within a university system. This provides unique resources and opportunities for collaboration with other faculties, such as engineering and the humanities.

The education offered by KIT focuses first and foremost on the artistic and personal progress of students. Our teaching is based on openness, dialogue and critical reflection, where students move freely in a flexible environment. With support from instructors and guest lecturers from different artistic orientations and backgrounds, the student explore and challenge artistic boundaries, learn, reflect and act. The academy is actively engaged in an international contamporary art milieu and has working relationships with artists, critics, curators and theorists from across the globe.
