Collage with Fotos of Institutions in Braunschweig and Neighbourhood

Braunschweig has 250.000 inhabitants, is situated in the centre of Northern Germany and has a modern infrastructure. The beginnings of the city go back into the 9th century. Its present form still reflects the rich past. Today Braunschweig is an important location for science and research. The "Stifterverband für Deutsche Wissenschaft" (German Science Foundation) awarded the city the title "City of Science 2007".

Close cooperations between the HBK and civic and regional museums and science institutions like the Art Museum Wolfsburg, the Duke Anton Ulrich-Museum, the Kunstverein Braunschweig, the Sprengel Museum Hanover as well as the Duke August Library in Wolfenbüttel allows insights into the current job market related to art science and at the same time offers invaluable material for teaching and research.

Its direct neighbourhood to the Braunschweig University of Technology ‘Carolo-Wilhelmina’, the Ostfalia Academy for Applied Sciences Braunschweig-Wolfenbüttel as well as the University for Music, Theatre and Media Hanover, the Leibniz University Hanover and the University Hildesheim enables joint courses and study degrees. HBK students carry out practical projects with the Games Academy in Frankfurt/Main and Berlin.

Students of the HBK also have the opportunity to conduct inter-disciplinary projects and co-operations with technology institutions in the region of Braunschweig, e.g. the "Deutsche Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt" (German centre for aviation and space travel), Siemens and Volkswagen.
The university not only offers trips to many cultural cities in Germany and abroad but also regular excursions to Berlin with its many galleries and museums. Berlin is only a 1 ½ hour train ride away from Braunschweig.
