The application procedure for all art and design degree programmes includes participation in an entrance examination. Applicants must register in good time for this. The entrance examinations take place on one or two days (Product Design) in the period from the end of May until no later than the beginning of July. Applicants are given a topic or a task which they must examine artistically. At the end of the specified time, they submit their design. There are no specifications in respect of the medium or working method.
Applicants will receive written notification about whether they have been admitted a few days later by post. Any applicant who is not admitted should enquire what this was due to. Feedback provided by teachers may help an applicant to be better prepared for a second application attempt at the Kunsthochschule Kassel or another art college.
