Application for the Visual Communication Program

Admission requirements

You are eligible to study Visual Communication if you have a higher education entrance qualification (i.e., Abitur, master’s examination) and can demonstrate your artistic capabilities in an artistic qualification test (also called entrance examination). You can also be admitted to the Visual Communication program without a higher education entrance qualification if you take part in the entrance examination and can demonstrate outstanding artistic capabilities. All those without an entrance qualification and who are applying for admission based on outstanding artistic capabilities must indicate this on the registration form.

If you received your graduation diploma abroad and want to apply, please follow the description found at Application for International Students
