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.

Muthesius Projects

The academic relevance of the creative professions should not be underestimated. Creative minds influence the economic strength of a region decisively. They are also create social change and culture. Correspondingly, it is important to show and offer students of the Muthesius the local perspectives for business start-ups during their studies. Through the development of a Muthesius project students can demonstrate their particular artistic/design skills by independent contribution, the proof of which is given by the project itself and a presentation. The Muthesius University certifies the completion of the projects with: »Graduate of a ‘Muthesius Projectʼ«. The projects are normally scheduled to last two, a maximum three years.

The application for a Muthesius project is possible on May 01 and November 01 of each year for the coming semester.
An application for the Anna Muthesius Fellowship is possible in connection with the project application on 01 November each year.

An artistic-creative project is approved as a Muthesius project for further qualification after graduation. In the sense of promoting young talent, graduates are offered the opportunity to obtain the status of a student of the Muthesius Kunsthochschule according to the enrollment regulations on the basis of a project proposal accepted by the Muthesius Kunsthochschule. Such projects should have a limited duration of a maximum of three years, they will be supervised by teachers of the Muthesius and certified after a final presentation. The projects may be supported by third-party funding and/or scholarships as well as material resources from the university. The projects can also be carried out in cooperation with other institutions, as a team and also with the involvement of students from the degree programs at Muthesius.
