Art School and Government Agency
The Royal Institute of Art (University College) is an art school and government agency that runs under the Ministry of Education and Research. Its activity is largely financed by direct government funding, and some of the research conducted here is funded by grants from the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet), for instance. We operate within the framework stated by the Higher Education Law (Högskolelagen) and the Higher Education Act (Högskoleförordningen) as part of the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG).
The Royal Institute of Art’s activity is also regulated through internal operational plans and governing documents and is reported in annual reviews and through evaluations. These are available in the institution’s document database.
