We recommend that all applicants register early for a portfolio review. During the meetings, you will get to know our professors and learn how to optimize your portfolio and which mistakes to avoid. It is not necessary to present yourself with an already finished portfolio.

The current dates for portfolio consultation:
Tuesday, 31/01/2023 – 2:00 pm (fully booked)
Tuesday, 14/02/2023 – 2:00 pm

The portfolio review can be visited several times. We recommend early and regular participation in our portfolio reviews to develop a meaningful application portfolio with the teachers. Participation is, of course, free of charge. The consultation will also answer general questions about the study and the portfolio.

Due to the improved corona conditions, we will again offer the portfolio reviews as far as possible (unless otherwise indicated in the schedule) at the Expo-Plaza in Hanover. Print out the images for the portfolio consultation. A4 laser prints or simple photo prints (e.g., from the drug store) are adequate for portfolio consultation. In addition to photographs, you can now also show videos, multimedia, and interactive works. In this case, ask for an appointment with Michael Hauri.

Some portfolio consultations take place digitally via zoom. Please prepare yourself and your images for the portfolio consultation as follows: Please ensure you can find the images quickly during the session. Please put the pictures in different folders if you want to show different works. The maximum number of images must not exceed 50.

File format: JPG
The longest side should be about 1,800 px.
