Overview

 Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) is a vibrant centre for teaching, research, and production excellence. While firmly anchored in Greater Zurich, our influence extends well beyond Switzerland to the wider international stage. We offer a broad range of degree programmes and continuing education courses in design, film, fine arts, music, dance, theatre, transdisciplinary studies and the teaching of arts and design. Closely interrelating teaching and research, we provide an ideal setting for transdisciplinary projects. Committed to bridging higher education, professional practice, and the interests of the wider public, we showcase the work and achievements of our staff and students in our own exhibition spaces, theatres, and various dance and concert halls. Our Theatre of the Arts presents cutting-edge student productions, our concert halls are home to concerts almost every day, and the Mehrspur Music Club offers a wide variety of pop and jazz concerts. Our affiliated museum—the Museum of Design Zurich—presents a rich array of acclaimed art and design exhibitions. Hosting over 600 events each year, we make a significant contribution to cultural life in the city and region of Zurich.

With around 2,800 students and 650 teaching staff, Zurich University of the Arts is one of the major universities of the arts in Europe. It is part of the Zurich Universities of Applied Sciences and Arts (ZFH), and is a state university with its own legal entity.
