The best thing about studying to be a teacher at the Berlin University of the Arts is the people and the nice atmosphere among the students.

What I like about the Teacher Training Programme at the Berlin University of the Arts is its broad range and versatility. I'm also pleased that artistic-practical education is emphasised here. Especially in the jazz-rock-pop department, making music together is supported and valued. In addition to the opportunities to learn and try things out also contribute to a pleasant social climate between students and lecturers!
