Although the Master's degree program does not include a mandatory stay abroad, but it is still possible to spend at least one semester abroad and even complete a double Master's degree with one of our partner universities.



One degree program - two qualifications

A double degree program offers qualified students the opportunity to obtain two degrees at the same time: the Master of Arts at RheinMain University of Applied Sciences and the corresponding degree from the partner university. Full recognition of all coursework and examinations completed abroad is guaranteed from the outset.

Participants must earn a total of 60 credit points (ECTS) at the partner university during two semesters abroad. The total study period is therefore only extended by one semester.



Partner universities for a double Master's degree

As part of the Global Design & Media CoSpace internationalisation project, we have been able to find partner universities where you can obtain your double Master's degree. Double degrees are currently possible with the following universities:



The course of study for the double degree program varies depending on the partner university, but generally starts with one semester at HSRM. This is followed by two further semesters abroad before the students return to HSRM for the final semester.
After completing the Master's degree at HSRM, the degree from the host university is also awarded.

At ICO NIDA and Walailak University, HSRM students can start the double degree program in both the winter and summer semesters.
At Volda University College, the program can only be started in the summer semester (i.e. 1st summer semester at HSRM, 2nd and 3rd semester at VUC, 4th semester at HSRM). 

Details on the course of studies and further information on the double degree programs are available on StudIP or on request by email to globaldesign(at)


Funding opportunities

Depending on which program you choose, there are various options for funding your stay abroad. 

For the program with Thailand, scholarships are awarded as part of the Global Design & Media CoSpace project. Students can apply for an Erasmus+ scholarship for the programme with Norway.  

Other general funding opportunities are also available:

  • BAföG abroad
  • A scholarship from the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) 
  • Promos funding (via the HSRM, information from the International Office)

The introductory event will take place on 16th April 2024 at the campus "Unter den Eichen"

Is there a first semester welcome event?

How can I get in touch with other students?

You can contact our social media team via our Instagram channel. The team is made up of students and can put you in touch with other students. 

Where can I find examples of work from the degree program?

You can find examples of work from the degree program on our Vimeo channel and on YouTube.

What technical equipment do I need for the Master's program?

In principle, the degree program provides you with all the equipment you need. You can work in our study rooms at any time during lecture periods. There are powerful iMacs and Mac studios. All equipment (cameras, microphones, etc.) is also provided by the degree program. Having your own laptop to run the Adobe program is of course still an advantage. Make sure that you buy a computer that has enough power. You can find more information about the required computer performance on the Adobe website.   

Is it possible to start the program in the summer and winter semester?

Yes, the Master's program can be started in the winter and summer semester. The contents of the first two semesters do not build on each other, but complement each other.

Should the equivalence list also be completed by students of the B.A. Media: Conception & Production?

Yes, a template is available to download from the application portal.

Should the letter of motivation simply be completed or is a graphic design required?

A template is also provided online for the letter of motivation. It contains the questions you should answer. No further graphic design is necessary. Impress us with your demo reel!

What should the demo reel contain?

It is best to cut your best projects (or excerpts of them) one after the other and separate them with short explanatory subtitles. In the list of sources, you should describe the originals you used in detail, i.e. title, production date, camera, script, idea, producer, project organiser, etc .
You also have the option of adding a link to your portfolio in the application portal. You can then show us other individual works there.

What else is important to know?

It is important that you set up your university email address as soon as you have received your login details (after enrolment). You will receive all other important information via your university email.
