Erasmus Application

Dear Erasmus applicant,
After your application at HFBK Hamburg has been approved by your home university, please pursue the following steps to complete your application:

Step 1

until April 30, 2017

First of all, you need to be officially nominated as an Erasmus exchange student by your home university.

Step 2

Please fill in your online application via CampusNet:, including motivation letter and curriculum vitae, and send your portfolio to the following address:

Your portfolio should contain photocopies – no originals, as unsuccessful applications will be destroyed – of artistic work completed by yourself during the past 2 years. The portfolio should contain about 15 works. Please do not send any 3D works (send photoprints or a DVD instead).

Step 3

We will send you a confirmation whether you have been accepted. It will include useful information for your stay, such as details about accommodation and language courses.
