Further Education

Diverse, interdisciplinary, future-oriented – the further education at the HKB


The further education is part of the creative cosmos of the Bern University of the Arts, in which artistic practice, education and mediation is taught, produced, researched and learned. The further education programme builds on undergraduate studies, is often oriented towards interdisciplinary work, and includes findings from artistic research and benefits from an extensive national and international network.


Do you want to expand your artistic repertoire as an artist or teacher?
Do you want to acquire new knowledge, skills and qualifications in the artistic-educational field to strengthen and advance your professional development?


We offer a variety of further education programmes, courses and individual training in the areas of design, conservation and restoration, cultural education, music as well as practice and principles of teaching in the arts.


At the HKB you benefit from an exciting art school environment, an outstanding infrastructure, a diverse exchange and a very personal study programme.


We would be pleased to advice you personally on the diverse further education programmes at the Bern University of the Arts.
