Arts and crafts course in glass and ceramics achieves Bachelor status

Research and Innovation

From 1 September, for the very first time, Denmark started to educate craftspersons at full Bachelor degree level, as is familiar in the international world of glass and ceramics. The programme will be based at the school on Bornholm, which since 1997 has trained and developed an international handicraft environment for glass and ceramics with Denmark as the centre.

From 1 September 2014 KADK could offer the 3-year crafts course on Bornholm as a full undergraduate programme. That means that the programme on Bornholm has become a fully integrated part of KADK's 38 undergraduate and graduate programmes.

"We are delighted that the Institute of Product Design will be able to provide an enhanced selection of courses, all offered at the same level. At Bachelor degree level, we now have a clear division between industrial ceramic design, which we teach in Copenhagen and the more one-off-focused glass and ceramic design on Bornholm."
