First-Year Student Experience in Berlin
In this time of travel restrictions due to COVID-19, we are relying on public health officials both in the United States and around the world to determine whether or not it will be appropriate to send students to Bard College Berlin in August. We will keep you apprised of the situation, but in the meantime, we are building a cohort of interested students who would like to Begin in Berlin!
Bard College deposited first-year students may apply to spend their first year at Bard College Berlin, joining a close-knit, international community in the heart of the intellectual and artistic hub of Europe. Click this link to a short application form for deposited students. You will need your Bard Applicant Portal login to access the form.
As an accepted student, you're invited to connect with a faculty member in your field of interest!
Bard in the World
Bard envisions the liberal arts institution as the hub of a network, rather than a single, self-contained campus. Numerous institutes for special study are available on and off campus, connecting Bard students to the greater community. Students can take advantage of many opportunities outside the region, through Bard programs from New Orleans to Budapest and Bard College Berlin.
