The town was founded in 1345 and still maintains its historic character in the city centre and its surroundings, where you will find a lot of interesting architecture from the classical period. Oldenburg, nowadays, is a city with about 160.000 residents located in the north-western coastal region of Germany. The two Oldenburg Universities with about 13000 students make sure that you will always find a rich, cultural life and a vivid atmosphere in town.

We offer a three-year bachelor degree programme (B.A.) and a two-year master degree programme (M.A.). Each year about 150 students begin to study at our faculty. Projects and lectures are given by 15 attached professors, several research assistants, and external lecturers. We offer an intensive working atmosphere when elaborating their design projects in small groups, personal mentoring, and studio workspace. You can sign up for courses from our Bachelor or Master Degree. Most of them are taught in German. However, each semester we offer some design projects which are taught in English.

During a bachelor degree, the 4th or 5th semester is the best for a semester abroad. Depending on your individual study plan you can get up to 30 credit points (CP/ECTS) approved for your semester abroad. During the 3rd semester of the Master Degree, a module called "International Studies" (20 CP/ECTS) is integrated which you can chose alternatively to the "Individual Design Project". Therefore, the credit points (CP/ECTS) that you received during your stay abroad will be approved here. In addition, you can receive credit points for electives.
