Planning and pandemics. As we’ve all learnt over the past few months, these are two things that absolutely do not mix. That realisation hits hard. Since, during Corona, many of us have come to see future plans like a ship’s captain sees a lighthouse in the midst of a tempestuous storm.
Perhaps your plan was to get into your university of choice this summer and sail into the educational sunset. Maybe all you wanted was a clear view of the coming months so that you could make a university application in the first place. If neither of those things happened, we’ve got some great news for you. As the old saying goes, life is what happens while we are busy making other plans. Often, it is life’s most unexpected twists that lead to the most exciting turns.
Did you ever consider, for example, that you could study abroad while earning a UK degree? All qualifications at our music production, film production, visual effects and screen acting institute are taught in English and accredited by a UK university. What’s more, Germany is statistically one of the safest countries in which to ride out Covid-19.

It’s up to you: You could join us for one of our intensive, one-year “boot camp” Higher Education Certificate courses and see where it takes you. Or, you could commit to spending the most magical three years of your life studying one of our Bachelor degrees.
