The start of a new, initially hybrid semester: The matriculation ceremony for the winter semester 2020/21 took place recently at the three branches Berlin, Cologne and Frankfurt (Main) on site and online via livestream. The university management welcomed the prospective new students and gave a preview of the new semester, most of which will probably take place online.
Whether online matriculation ceremonies, lectures via zoom or the virtual semester shows of the Department of Design: The past semester at the HMKW has not only confronted the students but also the university with unusual but also exciting challenges. Here we have a look back on this semester, which was extraordinary in every respect.
This year HMKW took part in the renowned Europe Teaching Survey for the first time and scored above average in the survey. The independent British organization Times Higher Education (THE) in London conducts the international study once a year at universities throughout Europe. The THE comparison tables are among the most important and most respected rankings of the international university world.
In its second show, our Talent Campus_Video team reveals refreshing tips for a wonderful summer in Berlin. Furthermore, the show features cult Berliner Günther Krabbenhöft, who gives insights into his philosophy of life and spreads posive energy all around the TV studio. A must see!
Creativity knows no boundaries: Despite lockdown and quarantine blues, our graphic and communication designers have been bubbling over with ideas this semester. The most outstanding works and projects were shown at the virtual exhibition of HMKW Berlin, which took place on Friday via Zoom.
Digital workshop talks: On Monday, 8 June, a design conference was held for the first time at the HMKW via Zoom. Four exceptional international designers from Paris, Barcelona and San Francisco talked about their work, presented current projects and gave the students helpful advice on how to enter the design industry.
Are you curious about the range of lectures offered by HMKW or would you like to take a closer look at our range of courses without obligation even in times of social distancing? In the coming weeks, prospective students have the opportunity to attend selected Bachelor and Master lectures of the current semester as guest students.
Since winter semester 2019/20 the workshop Talent Campus_Video has been held every week at HMKW Berlin. Here, interested students from all faculties have the opportunity to gain practical experience in film, editing and moderation. Now the first show has successfully been broadcasted.
