Applications for the course may be submitted every year by 31 May. An admissions committee verifies the application documents and invites applicants to take a qualifying examination, provided they fulfil the formal prerequisites and that their art qualifications have been preliminarily assessed. Generally this process is conducted in the last week of the summer semester (1st – 2nd week of July). After having received a written confirmation that they have passed the examination, the successful applicants enrol in the studies for the upcoming winter semester. The number of available study places is limited to 15 per year.
Application documents need to include the following:
- Curriculum vitae in table form (CV)
- School leaving certificate, certificate of higher education or similar qualification
- University or college graduation certificate
- Art portfolio including a selection of individual art work to date and associated documents. The portfolio can be designed freely.
- A letter that outlines the candidate’s motivation for the studies as well as detailing the his/her cultural and art interests, and experiences
- For applicants who are not mother-tongue speakers of German, proof of the necessary proficiency in German.
Applicants are accepted if they…
- can provide a general school leaving or similar certificate
- can provide evidence of a Bachelor degree corresponding to 180 credit points (LP)
- can provide evidence for a unique artistic skill, which is proven within the framework of the application examination
- have a sufficient knowledge of the German language. Applicants who are not mother-tongue speakers of German will need to prove their proficiency in German through a language test such as the German Language University Entrance Examination (DSH), the Test of German as a Foreign Language (TestDaF) or an equivalent examination.
