Exchange Opportunities

Exchange opportunities for international students

Internationality is one of the core principles of AMD Akademie Mode & Design. We place great emphasis on qualifying our graduates for the global fashion and design industries. Therefore, working with key international partners is important in the continued internationalization of AMD’s study programs.    

We welcome students from all over the world at AMD – as students from our partner universities or as freemovers. AMD offers study programs in German as well as in English. All programs are accredited by the state. Exchange students may register for courses up to 30 ECTS – the standard amount of ECTS for a semester. 

If you want to study at AMD as an exchange student, please contact your home university’s International Office.
