Our changing and complex society needs solutions beyond the mainstream.

At iArts (Interdisciplinary Arts) we can match problems to these solutions. This is possible because we view our society differently and the scope of our work is innovative and transdisciplinary. That is why our students are decisive change agents of the future. Are you one of them?

At iArts, unique in Europe, we are innovative. We combine artistic practice, academic reflection, research and entrepreneurship in projects with a strong focus on today’s societal issues. This cross-pollination leads to surprising ways of addressing and shaping issues.

This is achieved by inspiring and enabling students, lecturers and businesses to think differently, so they can explore and intervene in unpredictable, precarious and near-impossible contexts. In thoughts and actions and across arts disciplines, as well as in business and education.

That is why we choose to collaborate closely with professionals who are specialists in the cross-fertilization of artistic disciplines, but also with scientists, policymakers, entrepreneurs and professionals in the public and private sectors. As a result, our students are the decisive change agents of the future.

The arts programme takes three years, although a four-year version of 240 ECs is offered as well. The three-year track is open to all students who either have a pre-university diploma or can show proof of adequate previous education. Please note: the entire iArts programme is taught in English.


iArts is located in the heart of Maastricht, a European centre of culture and home to 11,000 students. The city’s numerous festivals and events reflect its diverse cultural and historical influences. Maastricht is investing in an inspiring, multifaceted cultural climate.
