The whole education is complemented by project assignments which are provided for in the curriculum. The intensive “real world projects” in the form of cooperations with the Creative Industries but also with cultural institutions such as festivals, media centres, etc. enable students an intensive collaboration with renowned organisations and companies already during their studies. In the course of their studies students thus have the opportunity to establish contacts with potential clients and employers. Towards the end of the degree programme students have to write a thesis in the framework of a special seminar. This thesis concludes the degree programme and serves to prove the student’s capability to work academically.
The prerequisite for admission to this programme is a completed bachelor degree in a subject-related field of studies or equivalent degree in a comparable field of studies. Currently the bachelor programme “Information Design” of the FH Joanneum University of Applied Sciences and courses at universities, universities of technology or universities of the arts in the fields of design, graphic design, interaction design, usability design, communication design, media design, art and design, architecture, interior architecture, stage design, marketing, computer sciences, and journalism are regarded as subject-related bachelor programmes.
