Programme for the entrance exam

Certifacte of Performance

This course is aimed primarily at graduates of music colleges and conservatoires and at ensembles (pre-formed chamber groups) who are looking to develop and/or specialise their artistic skills.
A degree is not an essential requirement for entry to the programme. However, sufficient artistic proficiency (corresponding to Master’s level entry) must be demonstrated during the admission process.

Acceptance to the course is dependent on a successful outcome to the admission exam and the availability of space on the programme.

The admission exam can be done directly on site in Vienna or by submitting respective application videos and serves to determine applicants’:

    a) motivation for undertaking the programme of study
    b) artistic proficiency (corresponding to Master’s level entry)
    c) artistic and personal suitability

The admission process is split into three parts – applicants must be successful in Part 1 in order to progress to the next stage.

1. Submission of a short biography (including language skills), covering letter, repertoire list and an audition programme:
•   Short biography: applicants should provide a written overview of the qualifications they have gained so far, their (language) skills, and the areas their activities have focused on.
•   Covering letter: applicants should describe their personal expectations of the programme and what they are looking to get out of it. Applicants should also state their current artistic activities and skills and those they are aiming to acquire.
•   Audition programme for Part 2: a programme for the artistic presentation that makes up Part 2 (corresponding to Master’s level entry).

2. Artistic presentation:
In the artistic presentation, applicants should demonstrate their instrumental proficiency and level of artistry. The programme should be put together by the applicant her/himself and should give as strong an impression as possible of her/his artistic qualifications. Instrumental proficiency should be at least that needed for Master’s level entry.

3. Colloquium:
Together with the applicant, a panel will discuss and reflect on the results of Parts 1 and 2 of the admission exam and examine the applicant’s individual and artistic potential as well as her/his personal goals and suitability for the programme.
 

Alternatively, an admission exam is possible by submitting meaningful digital application videos under the following conditions:

a) In addition to the documents referred to in point 1, a meaningful video must be submitted on the basis of the requirements referred to in point 2 to assess artistic suitability.
b) Furthermore, applicants must submit an introductory video explaining the motivation to complete the certificate course (maximum two minutes).
c) There is no legal claim to completion of the admission test in this variant, the responsible course director may in any case determine the completion of an on-site admission test.

More detailed regulations on this type of admission examination are determined by the bodies authorized by the statute and published on the website of MUK.
