The German Council of Science and Humanities certified the HfG's educational approach as "excellent" in spring 2008.

At the HfG Research Institute, modelled after Anglo-Saxon research institutions, scientists and graduate researchers carry out independent research projects; the Institute encourages an interdisciplinary approach. The 3D lab "Expanded 3 Digital Cinema Laboratory", for example, focuses on 3D television and cinema.

The chancellor is Professor Dr. Peter Sloterdijk.
