The central point of contact for all organizational questions regarding your studies is the Student Secretariat. We check whether all application formalities have been complied with. We grant admission to studies and organize enrollment for all newcomers at Muthesius. We check the feedback of those already enrolled, and process applications for leave of absence or guest auditors. We provide forms, good advice, and comfort in times of need. For extras we have to charge a fee.
Personal consultation hours are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 to 12:00. At these times, you can drop by the Student Secretariat, Examination Office or International Office without an appointment (Administration Building, 1st floor). Outside of these times, the staff is available in person by appointment and by e-mail / telephone.
Further information on semester off / de-registration / refund of semester fees / guest student can be found further down on this page.
Re-registration for the next semester
01 to 30 June for the winter semester
01 to 31 January for the summer semester
Re-registration takes place by paying the semester fee on time. For the winter semester 2023/2024, it amounts to € 276,90 including the state-wide semester ticket, but the fee changes every semester. In exceptional cases, you can be exempted from the local transport fee. Please contact the AStA (firstname.lastname@example.org) for a possible refund.
The semester fee must be transferred to the following account:
Account holder: Studentenwerk S-H MuHo
IBAN: DE 12 210 501 70 00 250 013 06
Purpose 1: Matriculation number (z.B. 909999)
Purpose 2: WS 23/24
Change of personal data
Whether name, telephone number, address, postal or e-mail addresses – all changes in personal details must be passed on immediately to the Student Secretariat.
Leave of absence from studies
We have summarized important information for taking a leave of absence from your studies in our fact sheet.
A leave of absence is generally possible for a maximum of two semesters during the course of study. In case of illness or care of a relative, longer leaves of absence may be granted. Students with children can apply for a leave of absence for a maximum of the duration of the legally regulated parental leave (3 years = 6 semesters).
If you wish to take a leave of absence from your studies, the application must be submitted during the re-registration period for the coming semester at the latest.
In exceptional cases (for example, in the case of illness), this is also possible immediately after the occurrence of the event.
The application for leave of absence must be submitted to the Student Secretariat together with the relevant supporting documents or sent in. In case of illness, the original medical certificate must be submitted. You can find the application for leave of absence here.
You can leave your application for leave of absence in the mailbox of the Muthesius (to the right of the main entrance door of the administration building) or send it to the Student Secretariat by mail or e-mail.
Exmatriculation from the university
Upon exmatriculation, your membership as a student at Muthesius ends. Sooner or later (e.g. for the new university, the health insurance, the employer) you will need a formal certificate of exmatriculation and the proof for the pension insurance.
Normally, exmatriculation takes place at the end of the semester (31.03./winter semester or 30.09./summer semester). In exceptional cases (such as a change of university), exmatriculation can also take place early on a date specified by you.
For proper exmatriculation, the Student Secretariat requires your completed and signed application for de-registration as well as the complete routing slip.
By means of the routing slip, you prove that Muthesius Kunsthochschule has no (more) claims against you. Confirmations from the individuals listed on the routing slip may be obtained in person or by email. Create ONE PDF file from all e-mail responses and send it including the routing slip to the Student Secretariat or the Examination Office.
Alternatively, you can leave your application for de-registration and the completed routing slip in the mailbox of the Muthesius Kunsthochschule (to the right of the main entrance door of the administration building) or send it to us by mail.
Exceptional case: refund for a re-registered semester
In the event that you have re-registered for the coming semester and wish to end your studies before the start of the lecture period at the latest, you may, under certain conditions, receive a full or partial refund of the semester fee. You will need a formal certificate of exmatriculation for this procedure. The refund of fees is made separately at two different places. Below we have listed the contact persons together with contact details and application form:

Westring 385, 24118 Kiel
