How does the appliction procedure work?

All applications will be forwarded to the appropriate professors for a decision. If you are applying to study with a specific professor, he/she will receive the application first. Please inform the International Office if you would like this application to be submitted to other professors as well, in case the requested professor does not accept new students that term.

While the artistic performance is the main criteria in the selection process, the letter of motivation, CV and letter of recommendation are also taken into account. The HfMDK aims to provide a response to applicants within 8 weeks of the application deadline.
