Inspiring Creativity – International Networks

The Hochschule für Kunst, Design und Populäre Musik (hKDM) is where acoustic design meets visual design. We offer a wide and contemporary range of creative disciplines in our curriculum – from music, illustration, photography, video, painting and graphic arts, producing, sound design, to games.

Our focus is on developing an intercurricular learning experience while working in small groups with individual tutors which enables knowledge transfer and allows you to build networks with other creative fields and industries.

Already today we benefit from an international network not only through our educational partnerships with other universities (e.g. we are the exclusive German partner of the renowned Berklee College of Music, longstanding member of the International Association of Schools of Jazz and partner in the ERASMUS exchange-program), but also based on the fact that one third of our graduates come from abroad. These factors contribute to the preparation of our students for the challenges of the globalized society. In the international program we offer our courses in English language, support our foreign students in matters of housing, visa issues and include a cultural program.

Experience And Know How In Education
The University of Arts and Applied Sciences – hKDM – was founded in 2011. Its shareholders, the Jazz und Rock Schulen Freiburg and Freie Hochschule für Grafik-Design & Bildende Kunst Freiburg have more than 25 years experience in educating and training musicians, designers and fine artists. To date, we have hundreds of successful graduates, who have passed their training.
