Application Process

The master's programme in Entertainment Producing admits new students every two years in the winter semester. Admission is based on a two-stage process called the Experience Assessment.

The two-stage application process consists of:

  • a written application
  • an entrance examination at the ifs for pre-selected applicants.

Candidates are selected from the applications received and invited to take an entrance examination, in which their previous professional experience is qualitatively tested and evaluated.

Since the Master's Programme Film is a German-language programme, please find all further information on the German-language page.

If you are interested in participating, please get in touch with the department (

The application tasks must always be completed in German.

The ifs is a cooperation partner of the TH Köln and all ifs students are enrolled at the TH Köln and can use the TH's service offers, such as the semester ticket for public transport, access to the TH's International Office or sports courses and facilities.

The ifs welcomes applications from ambitious entertainment professionals who have earned degrees in non-subject-related fields of study.

* In justified exceptional cases, applicants with exceptional artistic talent who lack one or more of these formal requirements may apply to participate in this program as professional training participants.

Applicants must have at least one year of professional experience in the entertainment industry – in production/editing or the individual creative trades of production (e.g. directing, camera, editing, casting, etc.). Applications from a related practical field such as event, theater or trans/multimedia production are also possible.
