Professional roles in the design field are constantly changing. Nowadays, design as a field has to encompass the “old” physical, as well as the new digital, media. More and more companies discover the value of experience design in delivering brand, product and service messages and engaging their customers and users through digital touchpoints. While many experiences are working on multiple senses, almost all of them are delivered through the eye, which continues to render our visual sense the most critical of all.
In our Visual & Experience Design master’s program, you will gain a deep understanding of innovative visual design procedures, unleashing your creativity. All topics will be delivered in sequential clusters, allowing the students to acquire and apply theories to real contexts, as well as to envision entirely new scenarios.
This course will focus on the critical awareness of the balance between creative, commercial and business considerations, developing visual narratives using different visual tools and graphic elements. You will also develop the ability to develop a specific brief to create research-driven projects and an innovative approach to business.
The University of Applied Sciences Europe is accredited by the state, has received multiple awards and is a worldwide leader among universities with an international approach.
Here you study in small courses, so you get individual support and personal contact to our professors. All of our lecturers are successful experts in the world of art and design.
Besides the theory your studies contain practical projects. Interdisciplinary courses enable you to determine the content of your studies. Our campus offers state of the art equipment, including photo studios, darkrooms, Mac pools, and more. Voluntary excursions give you the chance to see New York, Iceland, Vietnam, Paris and other destinations and work on your skills there.
We put emphasis on internationality. That is why we were ranked among the top 25 performers in student mobility and international orientation worldwide (U-Multirank 2016). Our numerous international students come from all over the world to pursue a highly valued (state and ZEvA recognized) German degree that is entirely taught in English.
Germany, known as the country of innovators, is the perfect place to get your degree. Germany is a particularly safe and livable country with relatively low tuition fees and affordable living costs. Furthermore, Berlin is known as Europe's creative capital, magnet for artists, and "place to be" for designers.
That's why we encourage international students to come here and study with us. You can apply with your national school degree now. We will then take a look at your application and guide you through the process.
We want your studies to fit perfectly into your life. That's why the lectures for the Master’s degree students are scheduled during the semester on Wednesday afternoon until Friday and/or Saturday afternoon. That is how you can reconcile part-time work with studying more easily.
But don't disregard the preparation and follow-up work a full-time study course implicates.

Your employment and earnings prospects are greatly improved.
All costs are included in the monthly tuition fee.
