Among the currently 18 XS students, many came to us with a pre-course degree. Jenni came as a trained dressmaker from self-employment, Yasmin as a trained graphic designer, Salome and Fabienne as experienced goldsmiths. Melanie changed from a history study degree to us and Klaudija from an architecture office. Prior to his studies, Samuel worked as a manager, bartender and fitness instructor and came with a passion for mechanics and complex mathematical questions. Whether precision mechanic, tattoo artist, dental lab technician or restorator; with a richly filled backpack of experiences, XS students are well on their way on this course.
