Doctoral Studies at the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts

Call for Applications

The Finnish Academy of Fine Arts has an internationally acclaimed Doctoral Studies Programme, with pioneering work in artistic research. This degree of Doctorate in Fine Arts was established in 1997. Doctoral studies in the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts are based on artistic research, where high-quality artistic work intertwines with theoretical studies. Doctoral students are experts in their own field, internationally renowned visual artists who apply research methods to their work. The aim of the doctoral studies is to give the students a profound understanding of their own field and the ability to produce high-quality artistic work that demonstrates their artistic maturity, as well as to engage the students in independent, innovative artistic research in the field of their choice. The primary results of artistic research are artistic productions and reflective and theoretical knowledge presented publicly.

Applications are accepted until 29 February 2012. The admission results will be announced on 1 June 2012, and the studies will commence in September 2012.
