The Saint Pauli area is an internationally recognised creative hub and a perfect home for all of our German students, as well those who join them from further afield.”

Networking with Hamburg’s Creative Community

We will be joining a local community of over 40 music companies including the iconic record store Hanseplatte, the music marketing experts of KRANZMUSIK, La Lupa Music Publishing, and Knust, one of Hamburg’s most iconic clubs. Knust has hosted gigs from world-renowned artists such as Napalm Death, Ty Segall, and Buzzcocks. In the summer months, enjoy the ‘Knust Acoustics’ gigs that are held outdoors in the sunny square right next to the college.

Students will rub shoulders with the most prestigious event promoters, venue managers, music producers and artists from around the globe. This provides our students with the opportunity to network with other members of Hamburg’s thriving creative community, which will undoubtedly have a hugely positive impact on their creative endeavours, collaborative relationships, and career opportunities.
