BACHELOR OF ARTS (B.A.) TOP-UP
After three years at htk academy you will have the technical tools and creative capabilities to look for a job as graphic designer. However, we offer you the great chance to study an additional year at one of our partner institutions, University of Europe for Applied Sciences (UE) or Berlin School of Business Innovation (BSBI).
Where will you study?
You will study your additional year at the Berlin campus of either UE or BSBI.
What qualification will I get?
At the end of this additional year of study on campus, you will be awarded a bachelor's degree in Communication Design. If you opt to undertake your top up academic year at UE, you will get a degree from a German university, while if you choose BSBI you will gain a UK degree. Up to you!
How much does it cost?
Additional tuition fees apply for this top up degree. However we do have a special offer for you: As you continue your studies at one of our partner universities, we will reduce the BA tuition fee to the fair amount of your htk annual tuition fee. Talk with your student advisor!
