Does the idea of studying at the Folkwang University of the Arts appeal to you?

Are you interested in studying at the Folkwang University of the Arts? There are many reasons to do so:

As the sole university of art AND music in North Rhine-Westphalia, we offer a wide range of subjects in the fields of music, theatre, dance, design and academic studies. At Folkwang, teaching and learning take place internationally. The over 400 Folkwang teaching staff come from all over the world – just as your future fellow students. We attach great importance to diversity and exchange.

The fundamental idea behind our education consists of cross-disciplinarity. For example, both the exchange amongst the various disciplines and stage/live experience is an integral component of your educations from the outset. Each Folkwang study course clearly highlights not only innovative art forms and concepts but also the constant reference to the professional and everyday world of artists, academic professionals and teachers.

And whichever subject you decide on: studying at the Folkwang University of the Arts means studying at very special campuses – in historically listed and architecture award-winning buildings, in the heart of the Ruhr metropolis. With our locations in Essen, Duisburg, Bochum and Dortmund, we are anchored in one of the culturally and industrially most interesting urban centres of Europe.
