Virtual Q&A


Do you want to apply at Animationsinstitut and still have a few questions about the study process, admission requirements or campus life in Ludwigsburg?

Register for our virtual Q&A sessions and get to know the senior lecturers from the fields of Animation, Visual Effects, Technical Directing, Interactive Media and Animation/Effects Producing. Students from the individual specializations will be there to share their personal experiences with you. In January you will also have the opportunity to talk to representatives of the student council and to discuss the last open questions about the application process and the admission procedure with our helpdesk.


Note: The individual Virtual Q&As take place on different days. Some events take place in parallel. We will send you the corresponding access links by e-mail after successful registration shortly before the start of the event.
