With the commencement of lectures in 2009, a gap was closed that had arisen in the one-sided natural sciences direction of academic psychology. The study courses at the IPU convey psychoanalysis as a science which maps the human as a biological, social and culturally imprinted being and which seeks to understand the individual against the background of their history and the influence of their unconscious. All of the study courses at the IPU are research-related, and provide close contact with clinical and pedagogical practice from the first semester. IPU Mission Statement The IPU facilitates studies, advanced studies and further education, as well as research with a psychoanalytical basis, and pursues a transdisciplinary understanding of science in its fields of teaching and research. In a dialogue with other sciences, it contributes to the further development of psychoanalysis as an applied social science and cultural theory. It conveys psychoanalysis as a science which maps the human as a biological, social and culturally shaped being and which seeks to understand the individual against the background of their personal history and under the influence of the unconscious. The scientists lecturing and researching at the IPU have gained many years of experience in practice, teaching and research. They enjoy excellent learning and working conditions with the required resources at their disposal. Analysis, discussion and shared development – on an interdisciplinary level and beyond the limitations of any status groups – represent a defining criterion of the scientific and organisational work at the IPU. The IPU builds up networks and establishes cooperative arrangements with national and international partners in science, training and practice, which promote mutual enrichment in terms of content and a positive perception among the general public. The IPU fosters a (self) reflective attitude in teaching, research and on an application level, a close link between application and research, as well as an interdisciplinary and international dialogue.

Coburg University of Applied Sciences

Germany Coburg October 2017

Profile Coburg University is a public university financed by Bavarian State Ministry of Education, Science and the Arts. As its English translation “University of Applied Sciences and Arts” suggests, a Hochschule is characterized by practice-related teaching and research as well as a strong practical bias. Its educational philosophy is designed to enable its students to apply their theoretical knowledge and methodological know-how to solving concrete problems in the… [+] ir professional careers. During their studies the students at Coburg University are systematically trained to develop those skills. To make sure that students never lose sight of the practical relevance of what they are learning, both full-time and part-time faculty are required to have gained ample experience in leading positions of business and administration. With the exception of art-related programs, the standard length of bachelor’s degree programs is seven semesters, one of which is, as a rule, in an internship. The practice-oriented approach to teaching is demonstrated by a required internship the small size of classes allowing individual attention to be given to students lab and field work, simulation games, project-centered education, and field trips the faculty’s wide range of practical experience A few numbers Organization 6 academic departments 1 Academic Center for Sciences and Humanities 5 scientific institutions Academic Programs 20 bachelor’s programs, including 8 dual programs 16 master’s programs, including 2 international master’s programs 97 international partner universities Students 5,000 students (50 % female, 50 % male) 100 scholarship recipients 900 graduates (per year) Personnel 120 professors 2 endowed professorships 500 staff members in teaching, research and administration Practical experience while studying As recent studies on the career of university graduates show, only those who have combined theory with practice while studying are prepared for a positive start in their career. At the Coburg University all undergraduate programs include a required internship. Project work – oftentimes across disciplinary boundaries – is part of student life. And seminars and projects with companies and social institutions are common components of our programs of study. The Coburg University is in intensive contact with professionals. In addition, all professors must have worked for several years in their field before being appointed to the university. The professors’ practical experience benefits the students, especially in their projects and theses, in which they must solve problems with a high degree of practical relevance. The big picture At the very core of science and education are curiosity and the joy of exploration. The wider the field of vision, the more there is to discover: The Coburg University is doing its part to ensure that students can develop to their full potential. The Academic Center for Sciences and Humanities offers a wide range of lectures and seminars in various academic fields, such as philosophy, history, natural and human sciences, and languages. Experts and periodically report on their fields. Learning about culture – and learning through culture itself – is something our students do in a variety of initiatives. These include the cultural offering “Caution Feeling”, the university choir, the cabaret group and the debating society. Interdisciplinary and individual - the Coburg way The demands of studying are increasing: Young people are expected to begin studying earlier, to acquire a great deal of knowledge in a short time and to develop their social skills. In our opinion, this is only possible in an integrated model. Groups of students from a variety of programs cooperate to complete interdisciplinary projects that are integrated into the programs of study, thereby honing their soft skills, such as communication and teamwork. They learn to recognize what is important in solving problems and to use their knowledge effectively. At the same time, the individual support of students is becoming more and more important. This is because access to higher education is now very diverse. Students come to the university with different strengths and weaknesses: one has completed a vocational education program without academic preparation in secondary school, another has a foundation of theoretical knowledge but little practical experience. To compensate for this, we offer our students comprehensive individual counseling services. This interdisciplinary program with the individual attention it provides to students is the cornerstone of „The Coburg Way“. This project has been fully funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research over several years. Family friendly University "As humans, we need family-friendliness." This aspect of our mission statement is reflected in the certificate "Family Friendly University". As one of the first universities in Germany, in 2007 Coburg University received the basic certificate from berufundfamilie gGmbH, an initiative of the Hertie Foundation. A re-audit took place in 2014. Students, teachers and employees are equally involved in the auditing process. The topic "Compatibility of family and studies or work" is a central concern of Coburg University. By improving the conditions, students and university staff who take on family responsibilities are equally supported. Family friendliness is not only aimed at families with children. Rather it also includes the increasing proportion of families who assume responsibility for the care of relatives. Students and staff receive support in the Family Office of the university. [-]

Berlin School of Creative Leadership

Germany Berlin October 2017

A Business School Bridging the Gap Between Leadership Research and Industry Challenges Theories can help you grasp principles you need to lead, but realities in the world of business make implementing that knowledge a very tall order indeed. Because of the breakneck pace of change that’s now common in practically every creative industry, simply staying on top of the most recent developments can be a huge challenge. And to achieve real success, you have to do more than j… [+] ust keep up. You have to pioneer and innovate, and inspire your team to do the same. We help you bridge the gap between research and the edge of the envelope in your creative field, with faculty made up of top experts from academia and frontline executives – each a member in our unique and expanding global network of creative leaders. With their help and guidance, participants acquire the tools they need to lead, learning how to shoulder more responsibility and become effective, creative leaders at their companies. Just as important for degree candidates is the peer learning that takes place during modules. Each class brings together a multidisciplinary group of experienced leaders from the creative industries, and their collaboration intensifies the challenging and rewarding learning experience.

Bergische Universität Wuppertal

MSc Germany Wuppertal October 2017

Founded in 1972, the University of Wuppertal (UW) is still young. Its twin goals are academic excellence in its individual disciplines and the consistent development of the interface between these disciplines and the world of practical experience – in a word, the transfer of knowledge and technological know-how. With a combination of disciplines that is somewhat unconventional for a German university, UW offers interesting possibilities – for example in subject combinations for… [+] teaching degrees, in interdisciplinary cooperations between the Faculties of Engineering and Economics, or in the field of Safety Engineering, where UW's degree program is unique in Germany. The university's reputation as a force in business and industry goes beyond its role in regional economics. Its business startup and marketing program provides young entrepreneurs with a first class springboard that once again in 2007 – as in 2005 – won Wuppertal number one position in the German university rankings. Vision The University of Wuppertal is a modern, independent university in the Humboldtean tradition. Teaching and research profiles The establishment of specific research and teaching profiles serves the purpose of bundling existing strengths, developing new synergies, and enhancing the impact of the university across the whole range of its achievements and potentialities. Policy Statement The University of Wuppertal sees the fulfillment of its mission and the promotion of its academic profile as intimately connected with the following values and principles. The three university campuses UW has three campuses. The Main Grifflenberg Campus and the Freudenberg Campus & guesthouse are situated on the southern side of the Wupper valley. The Main Grifflenberg Campus is on Gauss Str. and the Freudenberg Campus is on Rainer-Gruenter-Str. The Haspel Campus is in Unterbarmen (Haspeler Str. / Pauluskirchstr.). History of the University The University of Wuppertal was established in 1972 as part of the North Rhine-Westphalian (NRW) drive to create a practically oriented (or 'comprehensive') higher education sector. Already existing HE institutions in the region, like the Schools of Engineering, Industrial Art, and Education, were assimilated into the new format and expanded to incorporate new departments. A leading figure in this development was the locally born then NRW Minister of Science and Research, later Prime Minister of North Rhine-Westphalia and Federal German President, Johannes Rau. In 2003 the so-called 'Comprehensive University of Wuppertal' was re-styled simply 'University of Wuppertal'. The initial 3473 students by now numbered 20,000. A main focus of degree programs remained on the traditional Wuppertal subjects of engineering and science on the one hand and art and design on the other, with economics and the humanities given new prominence and state examinations for future school teachers offered in a wide variety of subjects. The roots of the UW Faculty of Engineering, as of the Faculty of Art and Design, go back well into the 19th century. [-]

Brand Academy University of Applied Sciences

MA Germany Hamburg October 2017

WELCOME TO THE BRAND ACADEMY – the international university for brands Creating added value through brands – that is what the Brand Academy’s training courses are designed to achieve. And it is precisely that which makes the Brand Academy a university which enables its graduates to start successfully in their careers and go far in them. At the Brand Academy you will learn from an international team of experienced professors, lecturers, experts and practitioners how t… [+] o design, communicate, present and manage brands. You will learn in practical situations and in small seminar groups, guaranteeing intensive personal support. History Inspired by their fascination for big brands, a group of German and Chinese friends decided to found a university for branding in 2010. They envisaged a place of education that unites and focuses on brand knowledge with a passion for brand stories – while not forgetting that education and creativity are two parts of one inseparable whole. A place that brings together cultures from the Eurasian region. It was from this thinking which the university was born. Categorised as a university of applied sciences, the Brand Academy overlooks the River Elbe in Hamburg – itself a city of brands. It is the first university to focus on brands – the central strategic success-factor in national and international businesses. Brands are exciting stories – and our students are the future authors of those stories. The Brand Academy is a government-recognised private university offering internationally accredited Bachelor’s and Master’s degree courses. We place great emphasis on a culture of creativity, curiosity and open-mindedness. Our university is a place of learning which combines scientific research and close collaboration with brand-name companies in Europe and Asia. THE MISSION OF THE BRAND ACADEMY: We investigate, develop and teach brands. Application-oriented, interdisciplinary and practically-based – we teach the knowledge of brand management, design and communication, and we promote intercultural, targeted networking to help our students to develop personally during and after their studies. THE VISION OF THE BRAND ACADEMY International competence center in the field of brands with focus on Eurasia. THE VALUES OF THE BRAND ACADEMY The way we think and act is guided by a set of binding values: Appreciation Dialogue Commitment Professional excellence Interculturalism APPRECIATION: We always adopt a positive attitude towards and value other people; respect and recognition are the basis for a pleasant and lively atmosphere of learning and working. DIALOGUE: We promote internal and external dialogue between students, professors, lecturers and practical partners, and between different departments and different cultures. We gain new knowledge through exchange and by reflecting together. COMMITMENT: We demand dedication, enthusiasm and discipline of our students so that they achieve the optimum learning experience. We care about more than just technical performance – we support each individual in their personal development. PROFESSIONAL EXCELLENCE: We are guided by a willingness to give our best and to find new ways of tackling problems. We encourage our students so as to facilitate for them an efficient, successful course of studies and a promising professional future. INTERCULTURALISM: Students from many different countries work efficiently with us in their education, their research and their practical projects. This intercultural environment we have established provides our students with experience and expertise which aid them in their personal development and give them a decisive advantage in their professional lives.

Witten/Herdecke University (UW/H)

MA Germany Witten October 2017

Witten/Herdecke University (UW/H) was founded and state recognized in 1983 and ever since has been a pioneer among Germany’s higher education institutions. Over a period of 30 years, we introduced significant innovations in research and teaching. As a model university we stand for dynamic reforms of the traditional alma mater and the pursuit of a humanistic educational concept adapted to the challenges of our modern knowledge society. In adherence to Humboldt’s educational ide… [+] als we perceive ourselves as an entrepreneurial university and strive to integrate research and student education, provision of scientific services, practical application and social responsibility. Theory-based and practice-oriented teaching at UW/H is always associated with the acquisition of subject-related, methodical, social and cultural competences, value orientation and personal growth. Witten researches. Research at UW/H is interdisciplinary, highly diverse as to methodology, and focuses on well-defined areas. As a private university with a moderate percentage of state funding in our budget, we feel obliged to contribute something to society in return for the funds we receive. One way to do so is to generate innovative research results. Real-life problems call for transdisciplinary research. The social relevance of our chosen fields of research is as important in this respect as transparent and generally understandable publication of research findings. Numerous UW/H projects are third-party financed. Over 40 applications for third-party funds were successful in 2010 alone. Our researchers cooperate with renowned national and international partners. All UW/H Faculties strive to address new and previously unexplored research areas and thereby to trigger significant developments. Witten educates. Education is much more than training for the job. In addition to subject-related expertise and skills, we also convey methods and strategies which enable our students for the rest of their lives to cope with complex and permanently changing demands of the modern knowledge society, either as generalists with specialization competences or as specialists with a broad general basis of knowledge. In line with the Witten didactics, student education is problem oriented, state-of-the-art and close to practice. Personal growth is another of our core objectives. Interdisciplinary – undisciplined Following Humboldt’s educational concepts, UW/H students study in small groups with an excellent student-teacher ratio and sufficient time and space to discover their talents and potentials and form their own opinions. Students are encouraged to think in wider contexts and assume social responsibility in and beyond a chosen discipline. The economic, ecological and social challenges of the future will certainly not respect the boundaries of academic disciplines. Witten – fundamental. Fundamental studies are a core element of the Witten/Herdecke identity. They foster out-of-the-box thinking. They embody the university’s guiding idea and facilitate learning processes beyond subject-related expertise. Here students tackle questions for which we have no ready answers, or for which there may be no answers at all. Education needs protracted reflection and a change of perspective, needs alienation and distance from self and the world. Fundamental studies offer this opportunity to call a halt. They constitute an undisciplined and decelerated approach to a wealth of perspectives between reflection, communication and art. Fundamental studies are the contemporary successor of ancient schools of the art of life and studia humanitatis. Among Germany’s universities the UW/H fundamental studies are the oldest and most sophisticated model that integrates academic issues and questions related to society, the arts, social justice, concern for one’s personal future, politics, psychology, philosophy and history, and assesses their relevance for an individual’s attitude, actions and conduct of life. In an increasingly complex, rapidly changing and insecure world, prospective physicians, entrepreneurs, managers, politicians or consultants need methodical, social, ethical and cultural competences as much as subject-related expertise. Witten gets involved. The role of higher education in society underwent radical changes in recent years. Research and teaching are still core activities at universities. But today we expect more. Civic engagement as the “third mission” in addition to research and student education has always been part of UW/H identity. At the founding ceremony of Witten/Herdecke University, Alfred Herrhausen spoke of “esprit engagé, a dedicated spirit to be developed and employed for the fostering of our society”. This spirit is an essential part of our philosophy and attaches equal importance to social responsibility, student education and generation of innovative research results. Right from the start Witten/Herdecke University assumed social responsibility in many forms and on various levels. Witten/Herdecke University is in a continuous lively exchange with the community: with Witten’s citizens, the local and regional business world, social and cultural institutions, even international organizations, corporations and foundations. In view of our tender age and a comparably small number of 1.300 enrolled students and 400 staff, we have produced an impressive number of social, cultural, commercial and non-profit initiatives. Witten works. Despite Bologna reforms, increasing economic constraints for universities and new degree programs for formerly non-academic professions, Witten/Herdecke University still offers the freedom of studies that are theory-based and close to practice, ethical and aesthetic, speedy or relaxed, dissident and unconditional, interdisciplinary and undisciplined. And if Harvard University President Drew G. Faust is right in her belief that university culture is essentially undisciplined and that this should be the starting point for future universities, then we seem well-positioned at UW/H. Accordingly Witten/Herdecke University understands itself as an unconditionally undisciplined university in the sense proclaimed by Drew and Derrida, and as a place of critical thinking. Witten makes a difference, Witten works: in research, teaching and in society. In – and at the interfaces of – health, economics and culture. [-]

Zeppelin University

Master Germany Friedrichshafen October 2017

University Bridging Business, Culture, and Politics Why ZU? The major ques­tions that we are fac­ing - both at pre­sent and in the fu­ture - are too com­plex and in­ter­linked to allow for a uni­di­men­sional an­swer. The in­creas­ing so­cial, po­lit­i­cal, eco­nomic, cul­tural, eco­log­i­cal, and me­dial in­ter­link­ing of our world re­quires a place of com­mon dis­course. And the uni­ver­sity is this place. It has a spe­cial func­tion in the 21st cen­tury: LakeCam… [+] pus at Seemooser Horn, located right on the shores of Lake Constance. It has to be a place where every ques­tion is al­lowed. It has to be a place of free­dom and a place of per­sonal de­vel­op­ment. It has to be a place of in­tel­lec­tual dis­course that brings schol­ars, stu­dents, and so­ci­ety to­gether. It has to be an ac­tive part of so­ci­ety, have an im­pact on so­ci­ety, and con­tribute to solv­ing so­cial and so­ci­etal ques­tions. It has to be in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary, yet at the same time rooted in aca­d­e­mic dis­ci­plines. This is ex­actly the rea­son why Zep­pelin Uni­ver­sity was founded - and de­lib­er­ately as a foun­da­tion uni­ver­sity. It sets it­self apart as - since its found­ing in 2003 - in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nar­ity has been en­graved into its DNA. Think­ing in a prob­lem- and so­lu­tion-ori­ented way be­tween busi­ness, cul­ture, and pol­i­tics, and not just being stuck in so­cial thought pat­terns and aca­d­e­mic dis­ci­plines opens your per­spec­tive on so­cially rel­e­vant so­lu­tions. This is the ap­proach that de­fines us here at ZU. To­gether we start out to think be­yond bor­ders. It is a great priv­i­lege to shape this unique ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tion to­gether with other par­ties. Stu­dents, schol­ars, the ad­min­is­tra­tive staff, and our spon­sors and part­ners all act in con­cert and in open ex­change to fill this idea of our uni­ver­sity with life. The role model for our ac­tions is Fer­di­nand Graf von Zep­pelin, after whom we are named. He was a pi­o­neer of avi­a­tion. With his strong will, he held on to his idea of con­quer­ing the skies - even though he faced set­backs. He be­lieved in him­self and in his vi­sion. And he reached his aim:"You only have to want it and be­lieve in it, and then it will suc­ceed." For us, this is more than just a nice-sound­ing sen­tence. It is the maxim that we act on. It is our main task to offer stu­dents, schol­ars, and mem­bers of staff the unique chance to de­velop their skills in such a way that they are able to reach their own goals and to find so­lu­tions to the chal­lenges of our times. This is the ori­en­ta­tion of all struc­tures and processes of ZU: in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary, in an in­spir­ing com­mu­nity, with a lot of room for per­sonal de­vel­op­ment, and a great pi­o­neer­ing spirit. Whether we will be able to an­swer all ques­tions of today and to­mor­row - this is some­thing we are not sure of. Yet, we are sure that we want to try. And if we only want this strongly enough, it will suc­ceed. [-]

Meanwhile, study on 1,900 young people at their five locations Paderborn, Bielefeld, Bergisch Gladbach, Mettmann and Marburg. The FHDW focused their study on the spectrum of business areas and business computer science, on which it offers dual and part-time bachelor's and master's degree programs. The… [+] combination of theory and practice is the recipe for success FHDW. In the dual undergraduate studies, she blends over the entire duration equal periods of learning at the university with practical phases in partner companies.

Humboldt-Institut e.V.

Germany Berlin Konstanz Isny im Allgäu Biberach October 2017

The Humboldt-Institut In the past 40 years more than 60,000 students from over 160 countries studied German with the Humboldt-Institut. This makes the Humboldt-Institut one of the largest and most experienced providers of German as a foreign language. The aspiration of the Humboldt-Institut has always been to offer the best German courses and to guarantee fast and effective learning for all students. Intensive German language course are offered in 17 locations throughout… [+] Germany, of which four — Berlin Mitte, Constance, Lindenberg and Bad Schussenried — are open year-round. The Humboldt-Institut offers German courses for all age groups and language levels. Class Size Our classes consist of approx. 10 course participants. With such a small size we want to make sure that individual attention is given to every single person. As we focus very much on the communicative approach of the language, while not neglecting grammar, we ensure to make every student talk and participate vividly by limiting the number of participants per group. Language Levels We offer up to 6 different language levels, from total beginners to very advanced, or, according to the European Framework of Reference, levels A1-C2. Schedule During an intensive course, our adults have 5 lessons of 45 minutes each morning, starting at 8.30 a.m. and running until 1:00 p.m., including two breaks. On Monday afternoon, there will be one lesson from 2.15 p.m. until 3.00 p.m.. On Tuesdays and Thursdays there will be two lessons from 2.15 p.m. until 3.45 p.m.. Tests All course participants take a weekly exam which covers all the course content taught the preceding week, so that students and teachers alike can assess the progress made in the German language. At the end of a level, there will be an additional „level exam“, which needs to be passed with a minimum of 75% to be able to advance to the following language level. Homework Our adults are also expected to do some homework every day, yet they will still have plenty of time for extracurricular activities. Residential schools In our residential schools students stay on the same campus where they have their lessons, which has, of course, many advantages for our course participants: they have all meals together, spend the afternoons, evenings and weekends together and hence it is very easy for them to make a lot of new friends from different countries in a short time. Practice German all day long Our staff will try to create a feeling of being one big international family at the Humboldt-Institut, where all students are integrated, and where German is the only language spoken. Having a chance to practice the target language all day long, even outside of the classroom, will speed up the learning process incredibly, and increase the motivation of the students. [-]

BTK University of Art & Design

MA Germany Berlin Hamburg Iserlohn October 2017

The BTK University of Art & Design is a private, officially recognized University located in Berlin. BTK inspires challenges and trains the creative minds of the future in two Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) programs – Communication Design and Photography – as well as in the Master of Arts (M.A.) study program Design / Media Spaces. OUR APPROACH The rapid digitalization of media has changed the professional role of designers during the last twenty years, making it mor… [+] e challenging and more varied. At BTK, modern design is combined with the traditional aspects of applied art and the innovative possibilities of new media. BTK offers interdisciplinary study programs, which enable students to explore the interface of both analogue and digital means of visual expression, and in so doing, help them to influence and determine the future of design. Modern designers work within a variety of disciplines and in international teams. Our students learn to think creatively, analytically and scientifically. In the overlapping fields of art, design and technology, students are encouraged to develop their design expertise individually, multi-disciplinarily and practically. Our graduates begin their professional careers with the ability to communicate as designers combined with a desire to experiment creatively. STUDY PROGRAMS Our Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) study programs – Communication Design and Photography – are completed in seven semesters. The Bachelor of Arts programs provide qualifications for a professional career in the future-oriented media economy. BTK also offers the Master of Arts (M.A.) study program in Design / Media Spaces, which is completed in three semesters. The Master of Arts study program provides a qualification for an artistic or design-based professional career, as a freelance or in a leading role in a company. CAMPUS LOCATIONS The University is located in Berlin. The Berlin campus of the BTK is situated in the creative center of the capital, near to Potsdamer Platz and the Sony Centre, on the edge of the vibrant Kreuzberg district and close to many cultural highlights such as the New National Art Gallery. EQUIPMENT AND FACILITIES We make available to our students a comprehensive range of media technology. In the area of digital photography, equipment such as the Canon 5 D Mk2, Phase One Digital Back Pieces, cameras and mobile editing suites can be loaned. Our facilities include studios for photography and video editing, a sound studio and a green screen studio, as well as modern lighting equipment and W-LAN. In the area of computer technology, BTK has over 100 Apple Mac workstations, a permanent Internet connection and the additional flexibility offered by over 50 Apple MacBook Pro laptops available for loan during seminars. This equipment and these technical facilities provide students with the necessary support for contemporary and successful design programs. Our library consists of an extensive collection of art and design textbooks and current publications, as well as books related to specific aspects of new media. Alongside traditional literature, BTK's library has a well-developed and constantly growing collection of DVDs and CDs, specifically in the areas of film and motion graphics. PRACTICAL AND CAREER-BASED What designers today need for a successful career start in the media industry is what they receive from BTK. Our professors and lecturers all work professionally in their various fields of expertise. Studying in small groups, our students learn all that they will need to prepare them for a successful creative future. Students learn both from the practical experience of their lecturers at BTK and also, during their 5th Semester, from an internship in the creative industry, in which the abilities gained during the course of studies are tested in the professional world of design. This practical experience impresses future employers and enables our graduates to be best prepared for the start of their professional careers. Equally important in terms of practical experience are the design competitions, which we regularly run in cooperation with well-known companies and institutions. Through these competitions, as well as the conceptual and creative work, all aspects of a design project can be experienced and tested to ensure a successful outcome, such as project planning, budgeting, resource planning and time management. By winning numerous design awards, BTK students and lecturers demonstrate that this course concept is effective. DESIGN FOUNDATION At the start of every study program are the basics and we teach these to provide the foundation for a solid training in design. This includes not only the basic understanding of rhythm and composition, colour and light, knowledge of art and design history, but also developing academic study methodologies and competent use of the computer software used in the creative industry: Adobe InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop. As all Bachelor of Arts programs at BTK share the same foundation modules, all the students from the various courses are mixed together – in this way all the students get to know each other and experience multidisciplinary work right from the start. Following successful completion of the foundation semester, students can select their focus of study and begin to develop their own creative personality. CAREER OPPORTUNITIES The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) programs at BTK provide qualifications for a future professional career, for example, as a Web Designer, as a Photographer or Filmmaker, as a Photo Editor, as an Art Director, as a Graphic Designer in a design studio, advertising agency, magazine and publishing company, and so on. The Master of Arts (M.A.) study program at the BTK provides an additional qualification for management positions in the design industry or an academic career in the field of design education.   [-]
