In the framework of the degree programme three work placements must be done. The degree programme concludes with a master thesis consisting of two parts: an artistic-practical work and a written theoretical explanation of it, and an examination before a committee, in which the artistic-practical work is presented and an oral question-and-answer session about it.
By means of an entrance examination the artistic aptitude of prospective students will be assessed. The entrance examination consists of two parts: submission of the solved creative-practical assignments, and oral question-and-answer session about the submitted assignments. Proficiency in German must also be proved in the framework of the entrance examination.
