At the University for Television and Film, it is possible to attend individual courses as a guest auditor. Guest auditors can be admitted if the departments find the application justified. There is no placement test for guest auditors. Admission is for one semester and can be cancelled at any time. New auditors are admitted only in the winter semester. Guest auditors do not have student status and do not take exams. At the end of the semester, they can receive a record of the courses they enrolled in as guest auditors. Guest auditors are not entitled to borrow or independently use HFF equipment (which excludes our department Cinematography for Guest auditors), nor can they realize their own projects at HFF. Acceptance as an auditor does not entitle guests to be accepted as regular students in a later academic year.

The guest application must contain the reasons for the application. The following documents must be attached to the application:
