What is the admissions process?

The admissions process consists of:

  • an online interview with the admissions committee and
  • an overall assessment of previous qualifications and practical professional experience based on the portfolio and/or the application

Language proficiency will be tested by conducting the admissions interview in German and English.

The online interview

You will be invited to an interview if you meet the admission requirements and have submitted your application in full by the deadline. You will receive an email with detailed information about the online interview in good time before the interview.

The interview will be held online via video call. The applicant must confirm that no unauthorised aids are used and no one else is present to help. The applicant must present official photo identification at the beginning of the interview.

The interview will be conducted by the admissions committee of the degree programme. It will last around 20 minutes.


It’s in your hands to convince with your CV, your interest in the course content and your personality.
