Tips and Tricks for a Smooth MFA Setup Process with Microsoft Authenticator
In today’s digital world, the need for strong security measures is more important than ever. Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is a powerful tool that adds an extra layer of protection to your online accounts. Microsoft Authenticator is a popular MFA app that provides a seamless and secure way to verify your identity. In this article, we will explore some tips and tricks to ensure a smooth MFA setup process with Microsoft Authenticator.
Understanding the Basics of MFA Setup
Before diving into the specific tips and tricks, it’s essential to understand the basics of MFA setup using Microsoft Authenticator. The first step is to download the app from your device’s app store. Once installed, you’ll need to link it to your online accounts by scanning QR codes or manually entering account details.
During the setup process, you may be prompted to choose between different verification methods such as push notifications, one-time passwords (OTP), or biometric authentication. It’s crucial to select the method that works best for you while balancing convenience and security.
Tip 1: Keep Your Device Secure
The security of your device plays a crucial role in ensuring the effectiveness of MFA with Microsoft Authenticator. Make sure your device has up-to-date operating system software and security patches installed. Enable device lock screens with strong passcodes or biometric authentication like fingerprint or face recognition.
Additionally, avoid downloading apps or clicking on suspicious links that could potentially compromise your device’s security. Regularly scan for malware and keep all apps updated to minimize any potential vulnerabilities.
Tip 2: Backup Your Accounts
Losing access to your Microsoft Authenticator app can be frustrating if you haven’t backed up your accounts properly. To avoid this situation, take advantage of the backup feature within Microsoft Authenticator.
By linking your app with your cloud account (such as Microsoft Account or Google Account), you can easily restore your accounts on a new device or in case of app reinstallation. This simple step ensures that even if you lose your device or switch to a new one, you won’t have to go through the hassle of setting up MFA all over again.
Tip 3: Test the Setup and Troubleshoot
Once you’ve completed the MFA setup with Microsoft Authenticator, it’s essential to test its functionality. Verify that you can successfully log in to your accounts using MFA. This step will give you peace of mind knowing that everything is working as intended.
In case you encounter any issues during the testing process or while using MFA, don’t panic. Microsoft Authenticator provides helpful troubleshooting options within the app itself. Look for support documentation or contact customer support if needed. They can assist you in resolving any technical difficulties and ensure a smooth experience with MFA.
Implementing multi-factor authentication with Microsoft Authenticator is an effective way to enhance the security of your online accounts. By following these tips and tricks, you can ensure a smooth MFA setup process and enjoy peace of mind knowing that your digital presence is well-protected. Remember to keep your device secure, backup your accounts, and test the setup regularly for optimal performance. Stay safe and secure in today’s digital landscape.

Master in Fine Art
Arts university bournemouth.

These differences are at the very fabric of the Fine Art course; establishing deliberate cross-cultural dialogues with students from International and UK backgrounds and providing a vehicle for highlighting differences in working practices and methodologies.

The World's Most Influential MFA Programs, Part 2
By Ian Wallace
May 28, 2014
You may have noticed that our recent survey of 10 of the world's most influential MFA programs was heavily focused on the United States. That's because we're patriots. But there are numerous other art schools around the world that have also made enormous impacts on the history of art, yielding generations of exalted alumni, boasting world-class faculty, and operating on a totally different scale and historical timeframe from schools of the U.S. model. (To give some perspective, the Staatliche Kunstakademie Düsseldorf , included in the list below, opened 14 years before the Declaration of Independence was written.)
While Europe certainly has more than its fair share of art schools with major institutional gravitas, newer institutions in emerging contemporary-art centers—like China, for example—are pushing cutting-edge programs that upend traditional notions of what an art program should be. With that in mind, we've compiled an addendum to our original list that considers the most influential, prominent, and respected graduate-level fine-art programs outside the U.S. Not all of them are technically Masters programs—but given the international scope we've considered any school that either grants an MA degree or has an equivalent post-graduate program.
LOCATION : Frankfurt am Main, Germany NOTABLE FACULTY: Judith Hopf, Douglas Gordon , Isabelle Graw, Michael Krebber FAMOUS ALUMNI: Anton Burger, Nora Schultz , Maria Loboda , Wolfgang Winter, Sergei Jensen TIME TO DEGREE: 4 years SELLING POINTS: The Städelschule, as it's known, was established in 1817 by a foundation set up by Johann Friedrich Städel to house his art collection and to establish the school. Forty percent of the student body comes from abroad, making this one of the most international art schools in Europe. The school's contemporary exhibition venue Portikus was opened in 1987 by the school's director, noted art historian and curator Kaspar König , adding to the Städelschule's reputation for progressive initiatives. We should note that the school doesn't technically grant either Bachelors' or Masters' degrees—at the end of their studies students receive the title of Mesterschüler(in) (literally "school master"), a special honor.
LOCATION : Greater Helsinki, Finland NOTABLE FACULTY: Irit Rogoff, Peterri Nisunen, Nora Sternfeld FAMOUS ALUMNI: Marita Liulia, Magnus Charmanoff, Helena Hietanen, Klaus Härö TIME TO DEGREE: 2 years SELLING POINTS: Named for Alvar Aalto , prominent Finnish architect and designer, Aalto University was founded in 2010 by merging Helsinki's University of Technology, School of Economics, and University of Art and Design (formerly known by the abbreviation TaiK). The school's Pallas Fine Arts degree program launched in 1994. Based on the interdisciplinary nature of art and the linkages between art and science, Aalto's highly individualized program mixes fine art, art history, and theory, taught by professors who are all working artists in the fields of painting, sculpture, visual composition, environmental arts, and art history. As a contemporary answer to the Bauhaus's combination of the fine and applied arts, Aalto's faculty also includes lecturers in drawing, color theory, printmaking, design history, theory, and aesthetics.
LOCATION: Oslo, Norway NOTABLE FACULTY: Ingjerd Hanevold, Hans Hamid Rasmussen, Ellen Kjellberg FAMOUS ALUMNI: Dag Hol, Karen Holtsmark, Svein Nyhus, Aase Texmon Rygh TIME TO DEGREE: 2 years SELLING POINTS: Oslo's National Academy of the Arts offers specialized programs in the textile, metalwork, graphic art, ceramics, and ever-popular "interdisciplinary" tracks. The school's structure acknowledges that contemporary artists have to be trained at the intersection of several fields—an approach exemplified by the school's new pilot program, the Masters in Art and Public Space, a two year program starting in fall 2014 that focuses on art in spaces outside of the traditional museum or exhibition institution.
LOCATION: Düsseldorf, Germany NOTABLE FACULTY: Tomma Abts , Peter Doig , Max Dudler, Katharina Fritsch, Rosemarie Trockel , Rebecca Warren FAMOUS ALUMNI: Thomas Ruff , Joseph Beuys , Sigmar Polke , Andreas Gursky , Thomas Demand , Gerhard Richter TIME TO DEGREE: 4 years SELLING POINTS: Düsseldorf's famous academy—which incubated the talents of the now well-established artists like Thomas Ruff and Sigmar Polke in the 1960s—was originally founded as a school for drawing in 1762. It became world-renowned in the 1850s when the genre and landscape painting associated with the "Düsseldorf School"—a century's worth of painters including Peter Behrens, Hans Dahl, and Otto Hupp, among many others—gained widespread international attention, attracting students from the United States, Scandinavia, and Russia. Then, in the postwar era, another Düsseldorf School was born in a different medium, when the famed teachers Bernd and Hilla Becher ushered in a new era of documentary-style photography through such students as Ruff, Candida Hofer , and Andreas Gursky .
LOCATION: London, England NOTABLE FACULTY: Fiona Rae , Richard Wilson, Dara Birnbaum, Marc Camille Chaimowicz, Brian Dillon, VALIE EXPORT, Haroon Mirza FAMOUS ALUMNI: Richard Hamilton , William Blake, William Heath Robinson, Sandra Blow TIME TO DEGREE: 3 years SELLING POINTS: One of Britain's most competitive and well-respected art schools, the Royal Academy of Art accepts only 17 students per year for its three-year program, the only one of its kind in Europe. Student painters, sculptors, and draftsmen enjoy access to state-of-the-art facilities including a digital media suite, sculpture workshop, video-editing suite, printmaking studios, and world-class library.
LOCATION: Beijing, China NOTABLE FACULTY: Yu Hong, Xu Bing, Liu Xiaodong , Zhan Wang FAMOUS ALUMNI: Zhang Dali, Zhang Huan, Fang Lijun , Jin Shangyi TIME TO DEGREE: 3 years SELLING POINTS: The only art academy of higher learning directly under China's Ministry of Education, the Central Academy of Fine Arts (or CAFA) was founded in 1950 by incorporating the National Beiping Art College and the Fine Arts Department of Huabei University . The school drew international media attention during 1989's protests in Tiananmen Square, when CAFA students created a plastic-foam-and-papier-mâché statue they called the "Goddess of Democracy" as part of their demonstration. The school's graduate programs get incredibly specific—for example, students can enter with a concentration in "research on the expressive language of concrete oil painting." (That's within the Oil Painting sub-department.) There are also departments for Mural Painting and Experimental Art, among many others. Despite its wide variety of specializations, CAFA is highly selective, turning away 90 percent of its applicants every year.
LOCATION: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada NOTABLE FACULTY: Paul Mathieu, Richard Clements, Keri Smith, Julie York FAMOUS ALUMNI: Terence Koh , Michael Snow, Neko Case, Stan Douglas TIME TO DEGREE: 2 years SELLING POINTS: Of Canada's four standalone art and design universities, Emily Carr has received the highest number of major awards for students and alumnus across Canada over the past five years. The school (the namesake of artist Emily Carr was formerly known as the Vancouver School of Decorative and Applied Arts) offers Masters of Applied Arts programs in Visual Arts (subdivided into Animation, Film/Video, Illustration, Visual Arts, General Fine Arts, and Photography), Design, and Media.
LOCATION: Paris, France NOTABLE FACULTY: Christian Boltanski , Marina Abramovic , Richard Deacon, Jean-Marc Bustamante, Annette Messager FAMOUS ALUMNI: Bernard Buffet , Edgar Degas, Henri Matisse, Pierre-August Renoir, Hubert de Givenchy, Ouattara Watts TIME TO DEGREE: 3 years SELLING POINTS: Of the many Écoles des Beaux-Arts across France, Paris's is the original. You'd be hard-pressed to find an institution with a catalogue of alumni comparable to the École's, which includes many of the foundational figures of European Modernism as well as major figures in the fashion and contemporary art worlds spanning its 350-year history.
LOCATION: Johannesburg, South Africa NOTABLE FACULTY: Jo Ratcliffe, Donna Kukama, David Andrew FAMOUS ALUMNI: Robyn Nesbitt, Kendell Geers, Sandile Zulu TIME TO DEGREE: 1-2 years SELLING POINTS: As part of South Africa's University of the Witwatersand, located in the industrial and commercial heartland of South Africa, Wits School of the Arts (as it's known) is a major hub for artistic development across the country, the continent, and internationally. The school offers graduate programs in the digital, dramatic, and fine arts.

10 Best Fine Art Schools in Europe
Europe is a hub for some of the best fine art schools in the world, in fact, the two best fine art schools are all in Europe, the United Kingdom to be precise. This means deciding to study in one of the best fine art schools in Europe a brilliant decision for passionate artists.
One of the interesting things about these schools is that they provide renowned faculty and artists that you can learn from, and you’ll even be inspired by some of the talented alumni artists. The same applies to some of the top acting schools too.
Even though we have done our best by providing these top art schools in Europe based on their rankings, reputation, academic successes, etc. While choosing a school, you should know that the best and right fine art school for you is the one that will help you achieve your goals, so focus more on what you need.
Before we list these schools, we would love to point out that you also need to consider your budget while choosing any school, you should survey the schools’ tuition and even the living expenses like feeding, housing, and transportation of the location. And, don’t hesitate to apply for scholarships if you decide on the school to enrol in.
Best Fine Art Schools in Europe
While choosing a school, make sure to do your research, that’s why we provided their official website links. Also, you should consider their location, curriculum, faculty, etc. before choosing, and because a school is no.1 on our list doesn’t mean you must choose it.
If it’s possible, try and visit any school that interests you.
Before we list these schools, we would love to thank QS World University Rankings for their help in listing these schools. Let’s get started
1. Royal College of Art (UK)
The Royal College of Art is undoubtedly the best fine art school in Europe and even the world, and QS World University Rankings agrees, naming them the number 1 university for art & design internationally for the 9th consecutive year. Their acceptance rate is not even so low (27%) especially when compared to some other Universities that provide similar quality education.
The only downside is that they don’t offer a Bachelor’s degree, but if you intend to enrol in a graduate program in Fine Art, then this school should be on top of your list. And, if you don’t want to enrol in any of their degrees, their short 3-week+ course in “Art & Design Portfolio Development” can help you improve in some areas.
2. University of the Arts London (UK)
UAL is one of the best fine art schools in Europe that provides an excellent education to their students and has also made it to the 2nd best in the world for art and design for the 5th consecutive year by QS World University Rankings. Amazingly, two Universities in London have been recognised as the best in Fine Art in the world for several consecutive years.
Anyway, for those interested in a Bachelor’s degree, UAL provides both Undergraduate and Graduate degrees. They provide more than 100 courses at pre-degree and undergraduate levels in art, design, screen, communication, fashion, media and performing arts.
3. Aalto University – Department of Art (Finland)
The Department of Art at Aalto University came out to be not just one of the top fine art schools in Europe but also the 6th best in the world according to QS World University Rankings. One of the things that makes them special is the fact that they combine their art program with other programs like science, engineering, social sciences, etc., to create a spectacular single program.
They provide bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees in art.
4. Design Academy Eindhoven (Netherlands)
One of the interesting things about the Design Academy Eindhoven is that it provides a foundation year for students who want to start a bachelor’s program but aren’t sure if a design and art education is for them. Or students who feel they lack the skills and materials to put together an effective portfolio.
Also, they are recognized in the world of art education by QS World University Rankings as the 9th best in the world, making them one of the best Fine Art schools in Europe. Besides their prestigious recognition, they also provide quality art and design bachelor’s, master’s, and pre-master’s programs.
5. The Glasgow School of Art (UK)
GSA is among the top fine art schools in Europe that have a proven record of creating some of the world’s most influential and successful artists, no wonder they are the third best in the UK, the 6th best in Europe and the 12th best in the world by QS World University Rankings. They provide several art programs at their undergraduate, graduate, and Postgraduate levels, and even foundational short courses.
6. Goldsmiths, University of London (UK)
The Department of Art at Goldsmiths, University of London provides different taught Programmes and research works to 472 undergraduates and 173 postgraduate students, as well as 59 research students. The school is internationally recognized even QS World ranks them #22 in providing art subjects.
They provide several art programs like BA (Hons) in Fine Art; MA in Art & Ecology; BA (Hons) in Fine Art (Extension); MFA in Fine Art; BA (Hons) in Fine Art & History of Art; BSc (Hons) Digital Arts Computing; MPhil/PhD Art; MA Artists’ Film & Moving Image; MFA Curating.
7. The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (KADK) (Denmark)
KADK provides three main art and design Programmes within their 7 departments, which are architecture, design and conservation.
Students intending to further their career in fine art will find KADK’s bachelor’s degree in Pictorial Art Conservation and Visual Design and Interaction with other programmes interesting. Also their master’s programmes in Art and Architecture, Visual Design and Interaction, and Master in Conservation, will interest students pursuing graduate degrees.
Moreover, the school is world-recognized and ranked #23 in the QS World University Rankings, making it among the best fine art schools in Europe.
8. Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design (Sweden)
The Bachelor’s programme in Fine Art at Konstfack University focuses on the artistic work of each individual student, and this kind of approach enables them to produce the best from each student. No wonder they are ranked the 26th best art university in the world.
They also provide a Master’s programme in Fine Arts where students will receive individual mentoring, group discussions, workshops, seminars, lectures and field trips outside the institution.
9. University of Oxford – Ruskin School of Art
Even though Ruskin School of Art at the University of Oxford is the 9th best fine art school on our list, their acceptance rate is still low, only accepted 130 students in their department, at a rate of 15 to 17.5%. Anyway, just like most other BFA Programmes on our list of best fine art schools in Europe, you can also complete this programme within 3 years, and you have to work alongside other students in organized studios. Also, their MFA Programme will only take 1 year to complete, while their DPhil Programme has a varying period of completion.
10. Universität der Künste Berlin
Besides the regular art majors Berlin University of the Arts provides, I love their art summer Programme where anyone, including international students, is welcome. Their study programme in Fine Arts is one of the longest on our list, it takes five years to complete, and those who complete it with outstanding artistic achievement are nominated as masters of the UdK Berlin.
They also provide Master of Arts in Art in Context and other art programmes. It’s worth mentioning that they are ranked #31 in QS World University Rankings.
We can’t deny the fact that choosing the right fine art school in Europe will have a huge impact on your future career. You should note that no two schools are the same, so there are unique qualities that make one different from the other, and it all comes down to your goals and preferences.
The best we could do is to highlight the best fine art schools in Europe based on their rankings, academic excellence, and alumni success.

Below is a list of best universities in Europe ranked based on their research performance in Painting and Drawing. A graph of 555M citations received by 24.7M academic papers made by 155 universities in Europe was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.
We don't distinguish between undergraduate and graduate programs nor do we adjust for current majors offered. You can find information about granted degrees on a university page but always double-check with the university website.
Please note that our approach to subject rankings is based on scientific outputs and heavily biased on art-related topics towards institutions with computer science research profiles.
