There are several good reasons for studying at the Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design. Our offer comprises 20 different courses of study within the fields of art and design in the old town of Halle (Saale). All courses are held in german language - this ist why the language skills have to be proven before starting to study. Still english language is very present on the campus, as we have a great mixture of international students, teachers and guests.

Application for International Students
Applicants from abroad should register online for the aptitude test by 11th March. German or English translations of certificates/school reports are to be brought to the aptitude test. The certificate must be equivalent to the general university entrance qualification in Germany. The guidelines of the Standing Conference of the Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs (KMK) will be used to decide on equivalence. In the absence of an equivalent qualification, admission is only possible in the case of exceptional suitability – just as for German applicants. Chinese applicants should submit certification from the Academic Evaluation Centre in Beijing.
If you would like to find out how your foreign school certificate or university degree is assessed in Germany, please use the database anabin of the Conference of Ministers of Education or the information on admission to the DAAD.
We strongly recommend that you take the test only if you have sufficient language skills. Even if the aptitude test is passed, applicants will only be admitted to courses if they can provide evidence of German-language skills in the form of:
- DSH (Level 2)
- TestDaF (at least Level 4 in all test parts)
