The KHB has taken on a gratifyingly international character in recent years. In addition to academic projects directed by KHB faculty members abroad, the college’s numerous international students, who make up about 24 % of its total enrollment, lend an international flavor.
All students are advised to spend a semester abroad during the second phase of their studies, to gain further professional and intercultural experience and to acquire additional skills. To this end, the college maintains partnerships and exchange programs with around 60 art academies and colleges in Europe, Asia, Australia and America, with active student participation.
In its rankings of 250 German colleges, the DAAD (German Foreign Exchange Service) has rated the KHB one of the ERASMUS European exchange program’s top participants by percentage for a number of years.
Through its international studies office, the Office of Student Affairs oversees the enrollment and advisement of international students, and also coordinates international exchange programs.

The coordination of exchange programs, including the acquisition of funds for the financial support of internationally mobile students and faculty, is the responsibility of the director of the Office of Student Affairs, in close cooperation with the faculties of all departments. The Office of Student Affairs advises all students involved in academic exchanges (both incoming and outgoing) regarding their choice of:
- an appropriate college abroad
- an appropriate time to study abroad
- a faculty mentor
- how to finance their exchange
- the application process
