The Portfolio (B.A.) and Consultation Dates


The portfolio should be stable and easy to transport. It contains the student’s own artistic or design work and must be submitted to the Examination Office in time (01.-15.5. for all students, o1.-15.11. for Communication Design and Industrial Design. The date of posting is not sufficient! If the last date for submission falls on a weekend, the application documents can be accepted on the Monday following before 12.00 hrs at the post room of the University. Portfolios which are submitted by post must reach the Examination Office securely packed and postage paid. Adding “Application/Course of Study” guarantees the envelope/portfolio will arrive at its correct destination. Costs for postage/shipment will not be covered by the University.

Portfolio Identification

Each portfolio must be clearly labelled with the name, address and intended course of study. This is accompanied by a form sheet, which is available for download from the Dates and Forms webpage. Each course of study has its own page. These portfolio sheets are filled in by the applicant and attached to the inside of the portfolio cover. The usual application documents should accompany the artistic works in the portfolio.

Portfolio Content

The requirements for the application portfolio differ from course to course. Orientation is given in the sheets available for download under Application Hints. It is highly recommended to obtain advice in a portfolio consultation. They are given by teaching staff at the university, the members of the Examination Commission. The Examination Commission makes a selection from all the portfolios duly submitted before the deadline. Applicants whose ideas could fit well into the profile of the Muthesius University are invited to Kiel for the practical test.

Portfolio Consultation

Use the possibility of getting ready via a preparatory interview and a non-binding portfolio consultation. Formally, the portfolio should contain 20 to 30 original works and not have outer dimensions of greater than 62 x 86 cm  (DIN A1), with the exception of applications in Fine Arts. Three-dimensional works can be photographed. Digital and film works should be documented on CD or DVD as well as in the form of a screenshot. Corresponding storyboards and concept studies should also be submitted in printed form. The dates given below have been set for the winter term. For a portfolio consultation no appointment is necessary.
