It is an extraordinary opportunity for international students to distinguish themselves with a truly international flair and stand out in the global job market.

Macromedia University’s practice-oriented teaching and close links with industry partners is a perfect complement to the outstanding academic portfolio of the University of Westminster. Through practice projects and close engagement with the industry, students at Macromedia University have plenty of opportunities to mingle with the industry, expand their network, and gain an international outlook while enjoying a vibrant cultural life.

As a strategic partner of the prestigious University of Westminster since 2015, Macromedia University offers the following Westminster undergraduate programmes in Germany:

This partnership is a result of the University of Westminster’s accreditation of the English-language courses of Macromedia University following an exhaustive academic evaluation. Students meeting the UK admission requirements are able to pursue these programmes at Macromedia University in Germany while being officially registered at the University of Westminster. Upon graduation, students are awarded the internationally recognised Bachelor of Honours degree from the University of Westminster.

Additional Degree: Get the German Bachelor along with your B.A. (Hons)

What makes these programmes even more interesting for students is the chance to earn the additional German Bachelor's degree under the 7 Semester Additional Degree track.

In this track, students will join the seventh semester of the Macromedia Bachelor track after completing the six semesters of their B.A. (Hons). To join the German Bachelor track, students do not need to meet the German admissions criteria. Also, no additional Bachelor thesis is required. 

Within the scope of this study model, graduates receive two internationally recognised degrees: the B.A. (Hons) and the German B.A.

7 Semester Track

You can opt to augment your course of study with an additional vocational semester that will give you a unique insight into the German working environment and help you forge professional contacts in the industry. The fully accredited vocational semester results in a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) with 210 ECTS, which qualifies you to complete a master’s degree at Macromedia and many other universities worldwide in only 3 semesters.

7 Semester track with Additional Degree

Once you complete the six semesters of the BA (Hons) of the University of Westminster, you can join the seventh semester of the BA Programme at Macromedia University.
