As a unique higher education establishment in the field of visual arts in Bucharest, with a good reputation nationally, the University ensures the appropriate training for future practitioners and theoreticians, and the essential premise of the education we provide is its responsiveness to the demands of contemporary Romanian society, as well as the synchronicity with the significant artistic trends and tendencies in contemporary universal art. This receptivity to continuous renewal takes into account the tradition of the local artistic education characterized from the beginning by an openness to European values. In order to attain these goals, the University has an elite teaching body, well connected, both nationally and internationally, to the present cultural life, as well as technological assets. The University's Library holds a varied collection of specialized books, including an audiovisual section whose rich patrimony represents a good source of visual documentation. A large number of exhibitions, some with international participation, take place within the exhibition area of the University, which is located in its immediate vicinity.
