More about our research in the arts programme:



For twenty years, LUCA School of Arts and KU Leuven have been working together to build an academic space for research in the arts. The Associated Faculty of the Arts at KU Leuven has given this research its own place since 2020. Artistic research became a permanent part of the university's broad research range. At the same time, the faculty guarantees the individuality of the arts with its associate status.

All faculty members have dual affiliations. They combine a teaching assignment within LUCA with a research assignment at KU Leuven. The doctoral program in the arts is the only one organized by the faculty itself. The bachelor's and master's programs remain embedded in the School of Arts. This translates into as a website for information about artistic research, the doctoral training, the research units and the researchers. And on the other hand, remains the website for students and their courses.

LUCA and KU Leuven, faculty and School of Arts thus form an inseparable unity, with which we put higher art education and artistic research on the map in Brussels and Flanders, Europe and the world.
