Sint-Lukas Brussels University College of Art & Design

Sint-Lukas Brussels University College of Art and Design was founded in 1880. It evolved from the Neo-Gothic arts and crafts schools built in the second half of the 19th century by the Brothers of the Christian Schools, an international teaching order founded by John Baptiste de La Salle over 300 years ago.

Today Sint-Lukas Brussels is an independent institution, which has deliberately chosen for contemporary innovative art and design practices and for high quality academic and professional education. The university college offers four Bachelor’s and two Master’s degree programmes. It also organises a Teacher training course and the Advanced Master programme Transmedia. Sint-Lukas Brussels is a diverse and creative community of 850 students and 150 faculty members.

Sint-Lukas Brussels is associated with the Catholic University of Leuven, which is Belgium’s largest university. This association called Association of Catholic University of Leuven enables us to provide strong academic and research bound curricula and degrees necessary for advanced critical and creative thought.

Its location in Brussels makes all the artistic, cultural and social activities of this international and multicultural city available to students. Through the “Sint-Lukas Stichting”, Sint-Lukas Brussels runs its own gallery for contemporary art and documents and archives all information on contemporary Flemish artists. Its library is one of the most important libraries for fine art in Brussels. Sint-Lukas Brussels is a member of ELIA (European League of Institutes of the Arts), ARTESNET (Erasmus Thematic Network), EAAE/ENHSA (European Association of Architectural Education) and of CILECT (Centre International de liaison des écoles de cinéma et de télévision). The college also has close contacts with other art schools all over Europe via the Lifelong Learning Programme.
