In particular, film, media and art studies programmes can be an effective springboard into the MA Film programme. If you are interested in lateral entry to the MA Film programme, then please contact us or come to an open day event yourself, to find out more about the possibility of studying here in Lucerne.
International Students and Exchange Programs
The MA Film degree program is designed for both Swiss and international students and is taught in German and English. Applicants are presumed to be fully fluent in one of these languages, also in writing; and to have a good working knowledge of the other (spoken and written) language – as well as a declared willingness to study it further, intensively, in parallel to the MA Film programme.
Applicants from abroad should contact our international coordination office as early as possible in order to discuss any visa formalities.
