Application Procedure

The Master's programme 3D Animation for Film & Games admits new students every year in the winter semester. Admission is based on a two-step process.

The two-stage application process consists of:
- an application with subject-specific application tasks
- an on-site interview or, alternatively, in the form of a video interview in the case of a very long journey from abroad or for other understandable reasons. Only those applicants who have demonstrated their basic suitability in the first step will be invited to this interview.


First higher education degree (e.g. Bachelor, Diploma) in Film, Games, Design, Architecture or equivalent

12 months of relevant working experience in the media and creative industries
