After the application with a concrete study plan, we work out the concrete goals of the master’s thesis together, right at the beginning of the programme. With this Study Agreement, our coaches accompany the students through their MA project, lecturers convey the accompanying content in lectures, seminars and exercises, and for the individual challenges of the work we arrange mentors, specialists from a worldwide network, with whom the students work out their solutions. With the person in charge of producing, the students work out a binding schedule for the completion of the master’s thesis.
Last but not least, an intensive class community with lively and critical exchange is the basis for the successful development of an artist's personality.
