Application Deadline: November 1 - November 30 for the winter semester of the following year


The basic admission requirement for our artistic degree programs is proof of artistic ability. You must prove this in the application process by means of an artistic portfolio and a passed entrance examination at our university. The portfolio should contain a selection of own work that demonstrates the applicant's artistic potential and creative development. A minimum age of 18 is required for applicants. A simultaneous application for the guest study program and the full-time study program for the winter semester is not possible.

  • Curriculum vitae (CV) as PDF (maximum size 5 MB) 
  • Passport photo as JPG, JPEG, or PNG (maximum size 1 MB) 
  • Portfolio showcasing a selection of your own artistic works as PDF (maximum size 20 MB) 

Please do not refer the portfolio to password-protected links or services that delete data after a few days (such as WeTransfer Free). Links must be accessible until the results are announced. You can submit your application here from November 1st to 30th. Personal submission of applications including portfolios, as well as sending them by mail or email, is not possible.

Results of the application process for the winter semester will be communicated by the end of April each year.
