While studying abroad, you only have to pay the Media Design School an administrative fee of €150.00 (inc. VAT).
When can you study a semester abroad?
After 6.5 semesters, BA students have the possibility of completing a semester abroad. At this point you should ideally have completed all modules of your degree and only have bachelor thesis outstanding. The semester abroad generally takes place between January and May. When you return, you will concentrate on writing your bachelor thesis.
MA students are advised to plan their semester abroad for after the 2nd semester.
What courses can you take at the university?
You are not restricted to courses that relate to the MD.H curriculum.
Does the MD.H recognise/count achievements abroad?
Since you will be visiting the foreign university as a free mover, you cannot count the courses from abroad against your regular studies.
