At the centre of the Muthesius University's focus is art and design, the creative and productive. Around this centre there revolves the fundamental relationship between theory and practice. This reciprocal relationship is a permanent process, a circular movement around the centre held by art and design. It needs free space to move. Thus, the first condition for art and design at our university is freedom. To study at the Muthesius is the desire to use this freedom to mature into an equally, creative and productivepersonality. IN this way, we can provide our students with personal biographies. (AZ)
The Muthesius University of Fine Arts and DEsign holds a range of bilateral agreements with European partner universities in the framework of ERasmus (Erasmus University Charter) and is open to new agreements on behalf of student mobility. International lecturers are always a part of these required courses. Young people from over 30 countries around the world come together in Kiel to study art and design. They make up 14 per cent of the student body, with an increasing tendency. This puts the Muthesius University above the national average.
