Since 2016 the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig offers the “Academy for transcultural exchange”. This is the first study program for refugees in fine arts and graphic design throughout Germany to enroll students regularly. The program is limited to four semesters and provides an opportunity for refugee students currently residing in Germany to prepare for a regular diploma program at the HGB Leipzig. The modules completed in the program can later be recognized in the diploma programs of the HGB Leipzig. Additionally, students can take part in German courses according to the levels from A2 to C1.
