HTK. A Creative Place
The HTK Campus in Berlin is located right in the heart of this vibrant capital. On a campus of 6,500 m², students will find highly modern studios and workspaces that make possible an especially innovative study course with a practical orientation.

Study in Berlin, in the very heart of this pulsating international metropolis and center of creativity and start-ups. In terms of art, fashion, and design, Berlin rates as one of the world’s hottest “in” cities, designated by UNESCO as the “City of Design” and featured in the global network of “Creative Cities”.
The education system in Germany is primarily the responsibility of the individual federal states, known as Länder. Hamburg and Berlin are two separate federal states, with each state government being responsible for education policy and legislation. In Hamburg the HTK - Academy of Design is officially recognised by the Hamburg Cultural Authority and in Berlin it is approved by the Berlin Senate for Education, Youth and Science. HTK studends will finish the course with a technichal vocational qualification and a HTK Certificate in the field of communication design with a high-grade creative portfolio.
The application deadline for the winter semester is September 1st. For the admission procedure, we can schedule an appointment within a Campus visit or a comfortable Skype interview.

No special English skills proof needed. The admission interview includes an approximately 45-minute personal interview and the review of the portfolio. The knowledge of English will be tested in the interview. The interview can also happen online.
