Behind the success of the Grafisch Lyceum Rotterdam is our continuing ambition to provide high-quality and innovative education for students and practicing professionals.
Students acquire valuable knowledge and skills for practical application in different fields such as interactive media and graphic design, animation, games, film & video, stage & theatre technique, sound design, media management, media technology, (digital) printing, finishing and a long list of exciting specializations.
All students who register at the GLR come with the common goal to develop their knowledge, skills and creativity in order to improve their opportunities for further study, careers and better futures. Common interests and the creative processes bring students together and fill the halls and classrooms with a truly creative atmosphere. And it is the creative atmosphere that makes the learning environment at the GLR so special. Students who develop ideas and creative products work and learn together. This binding factor creates an inspiring, comfortable and safe environment for learning and personal growth.
We are an educational institute that strives to maintain our leading position as a valuable source of knowledge and expertise in the creative media industry. We offer exciting educational opportunities for students, practicing professionals and organizations which realise the importance of keeping up-to-date with the latest developments. Working with the newest hardware, software and accredited educators makes the GLR a great place to study and a valuable partner to be associated with.
Staff and innovators at the GLR are encouraged to continually upgrade their knowledge by following the latest developments in education and relevant industries. This research and inquisitive posture enables the GLR to further develop our institution and our students’s prospects for successful careers. The GLR provides workstations with hardware, software and equipment which match those that are used in the professional work environment. Our state-of-the-art stage and edit studios for stage & theatre technique and audio-visual productions are often used for professional productions. Many members of our faculty are working in professional fields. We also have members who are certified Adobe, Apple or Microsoft experts, and who help us stay at the forefront of new developments.
