Programme

The Music Programme beholds a 3 year academic Bachelor training of 180 ECTS and a 2 year academic Master training of 120 ECTS. For every student we offer guiding to compose an individual study programme. Every programme consists of specific courses and general courses in Music training, Culture, Chamber music and Music practice (orchestra, choir and Masterclasses, see Tab “Projects and masterclasses”) and optional courses. The study programme counselor guides every student at the beginning of the academic year to compose an individual programme. 

Here below you can find the regular programmes for three Bachelor and two Master years. You can click on the courses to see more detailed information in the ECTS sheets. 

In the vademecum you find practical information about these subjects.
