Communication is everything: ads, book covers, magazines, logos, apps, interfaces, webdesign, or packaging design. Every day we encounter hundreds of visual messages. The Communication Design programme is offered by University of Europe for Applied Sciences .

They all influence our thoughts and actions, and not just on account with their aesthetic value. They also convey multilayered content and emotions. 

As a communication designer or graphic designer, you'll find the best visual and creative expression for all messages, thereby resolving the issues that arise in design.

Our university focuses on your development. 

That's why we teach in small learning groups and in a friendly and personal atmosphere. You will be taught by renowned lecturers from the creative industry and study at a campus that is centrally located, equipped with the latest technology (photo studio, print & scan lab, VR equipment, MacPools, etc.), and that is known for its international and English-speaking character.

At the University of Applied Sciences Europe you even get the possibilty to actively shape your studies and your career path. Depending on your personal career goals, you will select your own specialisations and choose from a range of interdisciplinary subjects. 

We regard our students as creative individuals. 

The practice-oriented specialist knowledge and the confidence in conceptual design you will gain will make you ready for the creative industries. The balanced mix of theory and practice will give you a capacity for reflection that will serve you well in your professional life. You will already design your very own covers, posters, logos, apps and more during your studies. The intercultural and interdisciplinary competence gained on our international university will also help prepare you for working life.
