A Safe Environment
The collective study-environment is an important part of the experience at the Royal Institute of Art. We therefore actively work to create a pleasant environment for our students. We comply with current legislation, and have internal rules in place for the protection of students’ health, working environment, and safety.
The student union, Club Mejan, both strengthens student unity and represents their voice regarding important questions. Therefore, union representation is present in all decision-making bodies at the Royal Institute of Art.
Our campus is located on Skeppsholmen in central Stockholm. Here, one can find modern workshops in historic buildings, all in an inspiring environment surrounded by water. Our studios and workshops are scattered over the entire island of Skeppsholmen. In the main building, Kasern III, there are also lecture halls, our technology store, service centers, libraries, cafés, and the offices of the vice-chancellor and administration. The Royal Institute of Art also conducts activity at Konstakademien (The Royal Academy of Fine Arts) on Fredsgatan/Jakonsgatan.
Students in the five-year program in Fine Arts have access to a studio space during their studies. All students may also use our project studios for both major works and time-limited projects.
We want our students to be well prepared for life as an artist after their education. Therefore, each year we offer a Post Mejan-week, which includes several career-coaching course elements. Examples of these include the economics course, exhibition production, and the contemporary art scene. Many of these elements are included in the overall education’s learning outcomes. Different elements are aimed mainly at different year-groups, and will return in some form each spring term.
