Germany – Hanover

The University of Music, Drama and Media in Hanover


The Drama School of the renowned Hanover University of Music, Drama and Media (HMTMH) provides practical instruction in numerous well-equipped studios that include a theatre for 200 spectators. Students on this full-time, four-year programme learn how to act both on stage and in front of a camera and receive a grounding in the specific requirements of the broadcasting, film and television sectors and new media. Students are awarded a diploma.

Following a systematically structured process, courses progress from elementary skills to more complex aspects. The curriculum includes lessons on performing-arts theory, workshops with international performers and study trips to selected performances and important festivals. The academic year finishes with a symposium week which will be open to E:UTSA students. In recent years there has been an increased focus on students’ individual “free” scenic work. There are also moves to establish international exchanges and work placements. Students take up Erasmus grants in England, Poland, Czech Republic, France and Greece and apply to take part in projects with young international artists. The university collaborates with theatres in northern Germany (Hanover, Bremen, Braunschweig, Goettingen, Oldenburg, Hamburg), the federal broadcasting station NDR and the directors class of the Hamburg Theatre Academy. The department receives regular invitations to national and international festivals such as the Heidelberger Stueckemarkt, the Muehlheimer Theatertage and festivals in Brno, Brussels and Lodz. Awards: Marta Awards in Brno for: “Reading Maria Stuart”, “Barbarian Paradise”, “The Wardrobe”/Annual Contest of the Drama Schools of German-speaking Countries for “Twelfth Night”, “Barbarian Paradise” and “To Moscow?!”.

Exchange Opportunities

Students take up Erasmus grants in England, Poland, Czech Republic, France and Greece. Our office is international in outlook and fully geared to setting up new agreements. Students take part in projects with young international artists such as the Polish musician/director Marta Górnicka (“Mother(s) Courage”, 2015). In 2016 an informal teachers exchange started with the Akademia Teatralna Warszaw, which will be extended to a workshop to be held in Berlin and Warsaw in 2018.
