n the last few years, digitalization of the media has changed the job description for designers. Nowadays, designers work in an exciting space between art, design, and technology, across disciplines and international borders. We help you to develop your creativity individually, with an interdisciplinary approach and practical focus, allowing you to make a real impact with what you are doing. And that means worldwide. These four guiding principles form the basis for our actions in this regard:
Thinking globally, transcending boundaries
There are no boundaries to creativity. We believe that the best prerequisites for personal and creative growth come from being open to things new, having the courage to think differently, and being prepared to look beyond the immediate horizon.
At the University of Applied Sciences Europe we invite you to experiment, strike out in new directions, and find inspiration everywhere in the world through an interdisciplinary study course that offers many options to choose from among other study programmes, with integrated semesters and excursions abroad, international internship projects, and collaboration with like-minded professors and students from all over the world.
Each of us has special talents
We help you to recognize your personal strengths and to develop your individual capabilities so that you can find your dream job later – by working closely with experienced professors from the real world in a trust-based study atmosphere that offers you an environment for your personal development.
Growth through trial and error
Creative design and hands-on learning have a special role here at our university. Our mission is to offer you a course of studies of clear relevance to your later professional needs and to support you with exciting projects. We give you space in which to try out different directions and find your own way, whether with the aid of an interdisciplinary choice of subjects, as part of internship projects, “project weeks”, or with study-related traineeships. Because each of us grows along with our experiences!
Using team spirit, developing creativity
We believe that a team is more than the sum of its members. Often, the best ideas emerge from creative exchange. Here at University of Applied Sciences Europe, we bring together professors, students and partners in cooperation from some 50 nations, each with their individual talents and expertise.
This creates a very special learning environment in which you exchange views, mutually inspire each other, and also encourage each other to think as entrepreneurs, as for example when planning joint exhibitions and conferences, or as part of global internship projects in which you develop creative solutions and give food for thought to clients from industry and the world of art and culture. And many of the connections made here at our university endure long after your studies are over.
On the teaching side also, you profit from exchange within a team because of the close cooperation of University of Applied Sciences Europe with partners and well-known universities worldwide in the development of programme content and teaching formats that have relevance for the future, such as lectures that span both national borders and continents.
