Magnifying glasses, champagne glasses, stained glass windows in Gothic cathedrals, glass skyscrapers – these are all part of an opportunity-filled world that is revealed to the freshmen in the Academy’s Department of Glass Art. Glass as a material provides an excellent and respected means of expression for artists, designers and architects.
• The faculty members in our department are internationally recognised artists; while our students are enthusiastic, and love their speciality. The sustainability of the department is based on Estonia’s long and strong traditions of glassmaking, and on a team that is focused on innovation.
• Every person is special and exceptional. The boundlessly diverse forms of expression that are possible with glass provide everyone with the opportunity to find their own way – to find themselves.
• The Academy’s Department of Glass Art is the only place in Estonia where students can acquire a thorough education in glass art. And the fact that glass is necessary is apparent from the world around us.

  • I like that the programme is well balanced in terms of creative and more practical subjects, that help you gain a better understanding of business and how to succeed as an entrepreneur. In addition, the form of study is very individual and the lecturers really help you reach your goals.

Their technical achievements were not based on the thorough scientific knowledge and perfect measuring devices we possess ...
