We are working towards increasing the number of modules delivered in English in Faculty 5. You may also enrol onto modules on other degree courses and/or in other Faculties, subject to availability and consent from a Lecturer or a Course Manager, where these modules are relevant to your degree and when your choice is accepted by your home university's outgoing students Coordinator (via a Learning Agreement).

HTW Berlin offers excellent internationally admitted education that prepares students for positions in museums and the cultural sector worldwide. Did you know that Germany´s universities are tuition free? Only a bi-annual semester fee applies. This means that if you are willing to take some German lessons, you can study abroad for a fraction of the cost of similar courses in many other countries.

Should you wish to take modules in German as well, our language level requirement is B2 ( as per the ECFR).
