The Finnish Academy of Fine Arts - Excellence in Fine Arts since 1848
The Finnish Academy of Fine Arts provides the highest university-level theoretical and practical training in fine arts in Finland. It provides broad professional artistic training whilst taking into account new developments in contemporary art. The Academy seeks to promote research in the fine arts and to act as a member of the international community of academic education in arts.

The Academy was founded in 1848 by a private foundation. In 1998 the Academy received a university status.

The programmes focus on specific disciplines of fine arts requiring artistic talent and expertise and seek to develop these further. The Academy offers degree programmes in sculpture, painting, printmaking and time and space arts.

During the academic year 2009-2010 the number of students is about 260. Full-time teachers are all practising artists of repute; about 50 teachers and lecturers are working on hourly basis. In addition, the Academy annually invites dozens of visiting lecturers and welcomes a number of foreign artists from all over the world to meet and work with its students.
