The Intermedia application procedure is always worth a try. Especially if you don't really know if the Intermedia study suits you. During the application process you can get to know us and the study program. That way you will quickly notice whether you can do something with the course of studies or not.
Intermedia Design offers a course of studies for people with different orientations - be it design, art or technology. The decisive factors are your openness and your willingness to go through development processes as a creative person and to want to participate in the design of digital media.
Have a look at the external website for the subject area: www.intermediadesign.de
There we will show you what you can expect from your studies, what career prospects the studies will open up for you and what has become of former intermedia design students!
