Information for course applicants

Subject-specific admission requirements

In addition to the general qualification for university entrance and demonstration of artistic suitability, the following subject-specific admission requirements have to be fulfilled for the Fashion discipline: Nine-month pre-university practical experience period in a sewing shop, tailor’s/dressmaker’s, craft manufacturer or costume/theatre workshop. Vocational training in the above-mentioned areas will be recognised as a pre-university practical experience period; students can apply to the Examining Board to reduce the duration of the practical experience period to between three and six months – depending on the student’s knowledge level – in the case of vocational training in areas other than those listed, for periods abroad or for other skills and experience acquired after leaving secondary school. Exceptions: The general qualification for university entrance can be waived in cases of exceptional talent combined with professional experience.

Study Information Day

The university holds a Study Information Day in January every year for applicants. General information on the university is provided, and the various disciplines showcase themselves. You will be able to talk to students and to assistants. The precise date is announced on our website by mid-December at the latest.

Annual exhibition

The traditional summer festival, which includes the annual exhibition, is held every year in July at Burg Giebichenstein. The university opens up its studios, seminar facilities and workshops to all who are curious about the fresh ideas, objects and pieces of art that have been created in the various art and design disciplines at the state of Saxony-Anhalt's art university. You are cordially invited to come along!
