Exchange and Collaborations

International Exchange
Konstfack is taking part in a collaborative network in- and outside of Europe. This leads to great opportunities for the bachelor students to do an exchange year.
Read more about the Schools that Konstfack is collaborating with here.

The department is also a member of MEDes, Master of European Design. This is an association between seven reputable universities in Europe. Students that have been accepted to the MEDes-programme will take their third and fourth year on two of the other member schools. The programme includes up to three students per class.
