Significantly increased number of applicants to Konstfacks's master's programmes - 34 percent increase!

15 February 2017

This year's application statistics for Konstfack's master's programmes shows that the number of complete applications is 34 percent higher than last year - a total of 720 applicants.


Today about 900 students are attending Konstfacks's various programmes and courses. Approximately 140 of these are studying in one of the two-year master's programmes. Now that this year's application statistics is compiled, it turns out that the number of complete applications (applications by the due date + submitted portfolios), are 33.7 percent higher than last year - a total of 720 applicants.

Above all, it is the two programmes in Design (Individual Study Plan in Design and Spatial Design), Visual Communication and Fine Art that attracts applicants. But also Ceramics & Glass and Ädellab (jewelry/corpus) has attracted increased interest.

Konstfacks Vice-Chancellor Maria Lantz is obviously satisfied:
- We know that our programmes will lead to greater prosperity in many respects. Partly society - in terms of sustainability, economically and culturally - and also for the individual practitioner to get deeper and broader, and can develop new methods and new expressions. Therefore, we have made an effort to reach out with information about our programmes. In this work all at Konstfack made an effort, but above all the students who are our most important ambassadors. I am very happy and grateful that more people are attracted by the depth of knowledge as a master's training means because it contributes to a better society.
