Help for art and design students from Ukraine

Art and design students from Ukraine are welcome at Muthesius University of Fine Arts and Design. In order to build a creative bridge, we have enabled a fluent transition for refugee students. We are open to working out individual solutions together which are adapted to the respective situation of Ukrainian students and which allow them to continue their artistic and design work as quickly as possible. This is carried out in direct consultation with the responsible professors. The Muthesius University of Fine Arts and Design welcomes the helpfulness, solidarity and participation of its students, teachers and staff.

International Students

…are welcome to apply to the Muthesius – please note that you also have to register at uni-assist and that a German language certificate is required.

Exchange Students

Please contact your home university’s international office for further information and support. Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts and Design holds a range of bilateral agreements to European partneruniversities in the frame of ERASMUS + and we are open for new agreements on behalf of student’s mobility. More details can be found on the left side – please click Exchange.

 

Paths abroad – Outgoing

Contact with our partner universities abroad runs from here. We implement cooperation agreements and bring partnership agreements to life. In addition, we provide information about funding programs and scholarships. The International Office, here “fernweh-Büro”, is the contact point for the mobility of students, doctoral candidates, lecturers and staff – outgoing and incoming.
Studying abroad or an internship offers the possibility to experience work and everyday life in an international context, an increasingly important aspect in the professions of the future. The most used aspect of our work is the ERASMUS+ program, however, Fulbright and the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) also offer respected and highly paid schalorships for teaching staff, researchers and students. When searching for further grant/scholarhsip offers, internet portals such as DAAD Scholarship Database and mystipendium can be very useful.

On the page “Europass” there is the standardized possibility to summarize repeatedly requested data such as the curriculum vitae and to use it for job applications.

Student Mobility

In the context of the Bologna reform, increasing student mobility is one of the central demands of all stakeholders in higher education. The aim is to enable all students to be mobile within their period of study. Complementary to the ERASMUS + program, PROMOS was launched with funds from the German Federal Foreign Office – among other things, for worldwide internships and study stays at non-partner universities outside the EU.
In the fernweh blog, we only publish offers for jobs and internships abroad that we have checked and can recommend. Especially helpful for designers are international portals like Design Directory .

With the introduction of Erasmus +, graduate internships are also eligible. They must be carried out within one calendar year after graduation (date of exmatriculation) – minimum duration for all internships: 2 months.

Teacher mobility

By spending time at a host university abroad, guest lecturers impart their expertise to students who do not want to or cannot study outside their university. In this way, they strengthen international partnerships between universities and promote the exchange of teaching content and methods. Within Europe, this can be realized with the ERASMUS + program for lifelong learning.

Staff mobility

In order to further the internationalization of the universities, there is the possibility for all employees to use the ERASMUS + program for further education and training measures.


ERASMUS+

The Lifelong Learning Programme ERASMUS+, one of the largest, most successful stories of the European Union, has promoted the international mobility of students, teaching staff and personnel in Europe since 1987. So far, around 2 million students and approx. 200,000 teaching staff have managed a stay abroad via the programme. The Muthesius has held an ERASMUS+ University Charter (EUC) since 2007 and thus fulfils all the conditions for participation in the programme. Via the Erasmus policy statement, the Muthesius University is obligated to network with universities and institutes within Europe.

The funding rates are set by country group for one academic year.
Erasmus funding rates 2023/2024
