Зверніть увагу, що, як школа мистецтв, ми можемо запропонувати навчання лише в галузі образотворчого мистецтва та графічного дизайну. Обов'язковою умовою є те, що ви вже вивчаєте образотворче мистецтво в Україні і були змушені втікати з України через війну.



AdBK Nuremberg is offering Ukrainian art students fleeing from the war an uncomplicated procedure for admission to the University of Fine Arts.
