Admission and nomination

for ERASMUS/exchange students


International applicants participating in ERASMUS programme or other bilateral exchange programmes gain admission to the Hochschule der Bildenden Künste (HBKsaar) Saar through the International Office.

Students from our partner institutions are admitted as non-degree students for a limited study period (one or two semesters). They are allowed to register for classes and to earn course credit points under the same conditions as regular students.


Application deadlines:

  • Winter semester: June 30th
  • Summer semester: December 31st

Application procedure

ERASMUS students must be officially nominated by their home university.


Your application includes the following documents:

  • Application form
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Motivation letter
  • Portfolio (it should be a collection of the most recent works. It helps the school to evaluate the achievements and determine the academic level of the applicants. It can be a booklet (not larger than A4), a CD or a DVD).

Please note that we require exchange students to be full time students. Full time studies equal 30 credit points per semester.
