For admittance to the master’s program applicants need to fulfill the following admission requirements:

  • Bachelor’s degree or an equivalent degree.

The admission is limited.

The DSH - or German Language University Entrance Exam for Foreign Students - is obligatory for all applicants whose first language is not German and who have earned their initial degree from a university (or equivalent institution) where the language of instruction is not German.

Students do not pay any tuition fees, the university only charges semester fees and contributions each semester.

Beyond all cultural and historical limits and in all social and artistic contexts, dance is a bearer of practical knowledge of the body and movement. At the same time, its fleeting character presents a challenge to scholarship. Dance studies thus represents a point of intersection between various disciplines and the arts in a period in which discourses of dynamism, movement, and the body shape all areas of scholarship.
