Incoming Exchange Students


The weißensee academy of art berlin has a network of some 130 international art academies with whom it has bilateral exchange agreements. The student* exchange has a long tradition and is actively promoted.

As we receive every semester much more applications that we are able to offer places, the application process for an exchange semester is mainly open to students from our partner universities and for scholarship holders (e.g. DAAD and Fulbright). In particular cases students can also be admitted as "Free Exchange" students.

Application Period

  • The application periods under the exchange program are:
  • For the winter term (Oct-Feb)
    from March 1st - April 15th
  • For summer term (Apr-Jul)
    from October 1st – November 15th.

The online portal is open for applications only during the application period!
