Open House 2020

At the annual Open House of the Angewandte students and lecturers provide insights into the studios, workshops and ateliers of the University of Applied Arts Vienna and provide information about the study subjects.

In December 2020, this will be done digitally for the first time, in order to give potential students the opportunity to inform themselves about studying at the Angewandte despite the current Corona regulations, and thus to reach an even larger audience.

Interested future students outside of Vienna will also be able to participate in the digital information event.

At the Open House, interested parties can inform themselves about all artistic studies as well as about admission and gain an impression of the colorful variety of projects, artworks and creative works at the Angewandte.

We would like to welcome all those who, despite these difficult circumstances, accompany us and inform themselves about the studies at the Angewandte in digital form.

In short video contributions, which you can access via www.dieangewandte.at/openhouse (coming soon), we will present our courses of study from Wednesday, December 9 to Thursday, December 10, 2020.

But you will still have further questions. Therefore, we invite you to the Live Chat on two dates daily at 12:00 and 16:00.

Professors and study advisors will answer everything you want to know.
