I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphics Design (4 year degree) of a H+ certified school that I found in Anabin http://anabin.kmk.org/anabin.html and would like to apply for a Blue Card in Germany.

I can't find my degree in the database (or any Fine Arts for that matter) so I'm thinking of going through the process of obtaining https://www.kmk.org/kmk/information-in-english/statement-of-comparability-for-foreign-higher-education-qualifications.html

Has anyone here done this and has experiences to share? Is this even possible with a Bachelor of Fine Arts?

My official job title will be Software Developer while I'm there, since I transition from a Design heavy role to more Developer oriented one.

  • This is specifically about the application process for certifiyng the degree with KMK. The question is basically does this count as a degree that will be regocnized as a College degree. I'm fairly certain for a blue card it is not necceary to have an actual STEM degree.

The answer here was no. As long as your job title is "Software Developer" the actual degree didn't seem to matter (for reference: this was in Germany)
