"And then I realised adventure was the best way to learn"

    Exchange possibilities

    By studying abroad, you have the opportunity to study in a foreign country and take in the allure and culture of a new environment. WdKA offers exchange opportunities in both Fall and Spring. However, in Spring design exchange only is possible in our second year.  The 30 ECTS  can be transferred against your degree at your home institute. International exchanges are increasingly sought after because you acquire a new set of skills living and studying in a different cultural setting from your own. In addition, having an international experience potentially increases employability because the skills and experience acquired may be appealing to a range of employers. For more information about exchange or international collaboration please contact:   Note: only students of one of our partner schools are eligible to apply for an exchange.    

    Incoming Exchange Students

    UPDATE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not able to offer exchanges in Fall 2020.   You want to apply for an exchange semester at WdKA? If you are a Bachelor student at one of our partner schools you are eligible to apply for an exchange semester at WdKA (Please check at your international office if your university and WdKA have a bilateral agreement. Before you can start the application process, you have to be nominated by your home institute!). Acceptance is always on basis of the quality of your portfolio in combination with places available. Deadline for the fall semester: May 1. Deadline for the spring semester: November 1. Please note: for spring exchange in the design programmes, enrolment is only possible in our second year. The following documents have to be sent to WdKA before the deadline, per regular mail or preferably, share the files via an unlisted public permalink like Dropbox or Google drive. We forward your download link with specific teachers. Please do not use temporary file sharing sites like Wetransfer.
