Cosmo and Johannes talk about their studies

Media designers sit comfortably at their laptops and make everything prettier? Is that right? Why aren't credits so important to design students? What does freedom have to do with it? Cosmo and Johannes give us an insight into the media design and digital design program. In this episode, you'll find out why decisions play such a big role. 

Aylin and Franzi from RWU (ER)KLÄRT - DER BACKSTAGEPODCAST take you behind the scenes of RWU and explain interesting facts about studying, teaching and the curiosities of our university family.

Submit homework and improve access grade

The study places have been allocated for this year. The next application is for the winter semester 2022/23.

You can improve your entrance grade by doing the homework and being invited to the selection interview. With homework and selection interview you can improve your grade up to a maximum of 1.5 grades (but never worsen it). The new homework assignment will be published on April 3.

The application portal will be open from mid-May 2022.

To give you an idea of how the homework will look like, you can find it here: Homework 2021

Design digital worlds

You want to study design. Photography, animation, film and storytelling interest you just as much as apps, games and AR or VR. Do you find new technologies exciting and want to give free rein to your pioneering spirit?
We feel the same way. We are a small team of creative minds who want to explore new ways with you to shape the future of the day after tomorrow.
From the first semester on, you will develop your skills in small groups and be mentored by motivated professors.

Thinking Through Making

Digital Media Design is all about ideas. We encourage your individual talents and discover the latest technical developments and tools together so that you can quickly make your ideas tangible. The program is project-based and has a strong practical orientation. Project work is developed in small teams and results from the interplay of design and technological implementation skills.

Design and technology

People are at the center of the study program. We design for their needs and desires in a modern digital society. Through your new ideas and projects, you create digital living environments with innovative technology and social vision.

... And after graduation?

Career prospects are currently very good. This was the result of a survey of our graduates in spring 2021:

  • 95% have a job and are satisfied or very satisfied with the job
  • 34% found the job already during their studies, mostly through the internship or the bachelor thesis
  • 78% work full time
  • 18% part time
  • the rest is independent
  • 71% found the job in the first 3 months, 14% took 4-6 months, the rest took longer.

The good career prospects are due to the fact that the graduates are fit in new technologies and programming. Without these skills, it is much more difficult to start a career.

A master's degree is also an option afterwards. Popular are:
