Students changing university
Transfer students in the Fine Arts and Gymnasium Art programs require the same qualifications as regular students. An application for a change of university is only possible if you are enrolled at a university of fine arts within Germany or the EU at the time of application and wish to continue your studies with us. If you have successfully completed the basic studies or a probationary period at a university of fine arts within Germany or the EU, you can be exempted from the practical and oral examination upon application. The application deadlines in this case are January 15 (cut-off deadline) if you begin your studies in the following summer semester and May 15 (cut-off deadline) if you begin your studies in the following winter semester. If you are interested, please contact the Student Secretariat for further information and to clarify the details.
Visiting students may only attend the life drawing course and art history lectures. In principle, visiting students require the same qualifications as regular students, but the academy is entitled to make exceptions in special cases.
