Design & Art - Exchange Students

Hamburg is Germany's second largest city after Berlin and home to fifty museums and galleries. With its creative scene and large publishing houses it is the ideal place for art and design. The Design degree programmes at the HAW Hamburg are characterised by an intensive groundwork in artistic and design techniques, bulding creativity and innovation. This is followed by the development of design concepts that are realised in a wide spectrum of media applications from book illustration, comic, web design to fashion collections and textile design.

Art and Design exchange students from our partner universities can study one or two semesters at the HAW Hamburg and can choose from the following courses:

Design & Art courses

  • Book Illustration*
  • Brand Design

  • Innovative Storytelling (winter semester only)
  • Interaction Design*

NOTE:

1. Classes marked with a * are in German with an English tutorial
2. "Design Theory" and "Innovative Storytelling" are in English
3. The other classes are a mixture of English and German
4. Students can take a maximum of 30 ECTS credits in one semester

These classes are open only to exchange students who are studying design or art as a major at their home university. Applicants must provide a portfolio with their application.

The module handbook has a short description of the courses and their prerequisites. The course programme can change each semester.

In all cases you do NOT need German to complete the classes, but it helps if you have a bit of German and/or come to Hamburg with the intention of learning some German during your study abroad semester.
