8.3.4 Higher arts education and professional training
The so called Academies or Schools for the Arts are institutions for higher professional education (HBO institutions, also called "universities of professional education"). They offer courses in fine art, design, music, dance and theatre to become a professional artist. Higher Vocational Training can lead to a teaching diploma in Dance, Fine Arts or Music. With this diploma, recognised throughout Europe, graduates are qualified to teach at all levels of education. The main change in higher education is the implementation of the Bachelor and Master Degree system, which is intended to give students greater international mobility. In concert with this shift, the value of study programmes must be more easily recognisable, and they will be accredited to indicate quality.
