For the purposes of exchanging knowledge, ideas and experiences, we have a good cooperative relationship with the Master of Fine Arts programme at Hunter College in New York. This includes lecturer and student exchanges and joint projects. Every year, a number of MFA Painting students are given the option of spending a semester in New York, to participate in the Hunter College study programme and use the studio spaces there. We also have an exchange programme with the Master of Fine Arts degree course at the University of Pennsylvania's School of Design. Every year a number of our students can spend a month or more participating in its programme.
