The Florence Academy of Art in Sweden approved for study assistance (CSN)

by admin2

Thursday morning brought happy news as The Florence Academy of Art in Sweden was officially ackredited as a KU-education for study assistance by the Swedish state.

– The Florence Academy of Art is an alternative to the already existing art schools of Scandinavia. Students who study here do so because they acknowledge that tradition-based training in drawing and painting is a fundamental part of their artistic endeavor. FAA students now enjoy the same rights as students enrolled in colleges and universities in northern Europe – I think this is only fair, says Andreas Birath, Executive Director of FAA/Sweden.

The decison allows for Swedish students to apply for study assistance from the Swedish state (through CSN) to fund their studies at The Florence Academy of Art in Sweden. This study assistance consists of a loan and a grant.

– I am really happy for our students. They have shown such dedication. The training itself is highly demanding, add to that the insecurity of economic issues – it has been a great challenge for them. This decision now puts all of our students in a place where they can fully focus on their artistic training, says Joakim Ericsson, Academic Director of FAA/Sweden.

Starting with Fall trimester 2012, students at FAA/Sweden have the option of applying for study assistance. Deadlines for application are February 1, for early acceptance, and May 1.
