The following application requirements apply to all applicants to the Communication Design degree track:

Other certificates and degrees could qualify an applicant for a degree course, so long as they are equivalent to those listed above. Other high school leaving certificates, certificates and degrees are approved by the Dean of Studies.
Applicants educated outside of Germany are advised to contact the Registrar's Office directly. Artistic and personal aptitude will be determined on the basis of a portfolio containing work completed by the applicant, an essay and individual interviews.
