Dashak Agrawal Lighting Designer | WINGS-Fernstudium

I studied at the distance learning - Lighting design program at WINGS University from 2014 to 2016. I learnt a lot during the course of the program, not only professionally but also personally. With the best of faculty teaching us and eight years of experience in the lighting industry, I have managed to further expand my horizon about this particular field. Alongside, since we were a batch of students belonging to 15 countries, the exposure and interactions have only helped me garner knowledge. All like good things come to an end, so did Wismar. The course at Wismar, not only did it give me friends for life, but also honed my skills and exponentially grew my knowledge in the field of lighting design."

Dashak Agrawal from India The Love of Light

The Master’s programme Lighting Design is specifically tailored for professionals working in the field of architecture, interior design, lighting, theatre or electrical and building engineering. The combination of ‘Lighting Design’ and ‘Design Management’ provides you with the creative and technical knowledge to manage lighting design projects as well as the economic and marketing aspects necessary to manage offices professionally.

The road to becoming an international student is paved with deadlines. So are most of the milestones you’ll need to pass throughout the process, such as applying for financial aid, tourist visa, the language exam and others.

It is a common fact that, if you want to enrol in an American university, you should begin documenting for your application two years before you actually apply. In other countries and Europe, you can begin the process one year before submitting the documents.

Accelerated WINGS application process:

However, for the professional Master’s programme in Lighting Design at Wismar University we are offering a much faster application process (within one month).

Don’t miss the chance and start your studies in 2024!
