We hope that you are enjoying your holidays as much as possible in these strange times. This is an important opportunity for all of us to reflect and reconnect before we tackle the challenges of the next academic year.

Summer closing
On Saturday, DAE will start its two-week summer break. We would like to thank the staff, heads and tutors who have sacrificed their time to make sure that the Academy could open under extraordinary circumstances and give graduating students the opportunity to finish their projects. 
Now they need a break!

DAE will be completely closed from 25 July until 9 August.

We will be back in the second half of August to update you on the latest news and the development of our plans to resume on-site education with social distancing.

Updated Q&A
All of the latest information on how the Coronavirus affects DAE and our community is available in the Q&A on our website. Please have a thorough read of this, even if you have read it before. There are some important additions and changes in the latest update.

Travel advice
If you are travelling over the summer for any reason, please stay safe and try to be back in The Netherlands in the latter half of August so you have plenty of time to quarantine before the Academy reopens.

It is your responsibility to follow the regulations around isolation and quarantine. Details on this can be found in our Q&A. However, if you have a real emergency that means you cannot get back in time to quarantine before 1 September, you can email

We are looking forward to welcoming you back to the Academy at the beginning of September.
