You can find initial information on the page of the desired study program/course. Under Downloads you can find out about the legal regulations as well as study contents in the curriculum. You can find the study pages in the study finder.

Yes, in general it is possible to attend selected courses as a non-degree programme student and, if interested, to take the examinations. An entrance examination is not necessary.

In order to be admitted to a non-degree programme, an application must be submitted to attend individual courses. However, only academic-theoretical courses are available for selection, depending on availability and capacity. Participation in artistic-practical courses, language courses, composition and aural training is not possible.

The application must be made by using the application form, it must be submitted to the Study and Examination Management (in person or by email to The desired courses must be listed on the application form and the signatures of the teachers are also required.

Once the application has been approved, it is possible to attend the courses and take the examinations within one semester. Information on enrolment will be sent to you by e-mail.

Extraordinary students who attend individual courses as guest students must pay the ÖH fee and the normal tuition fee (€363.36) per semester, regardless of their nationality.

Information on semester fees can be found here.

Information can be found at or and under Financial & Scholarships.

The requirements differ depending on the course of study. For all studies and courses, an admission test must first be taken to prove artistic aptitude, which usually also includes proof of German language proficiency. For teacher training programs, the general university entrance qualification is also required.

If you are applying for a master's degree or a postgraduate course, you will also need to have completed the relevant previous studies (a bachelor's degree or master's degree in a suitable subject).

You will find detailed information for each study program on the respective study pages.

Attention: If you have already completed a degree programme, the same degree programme cannot be completed again! 
Example: completed study BA Violoncello (artistic) -> no renewed artistic bachelor study in the same instrument possible!  However, you could apply for any other bachelor study (artistic, pedagogical, other instrument) or for an artistic master study Violoncello.

The language of instruction at the Mozarteum University Salzburg is German for almost all studies. The only exceptions are the master's programme Applied Theatre and the doctoral programme PhD in the Arts, for which English language skills are required. Information on the required language level can be found here: German & English proficiency

For the postgraduate university courses no proof of German is necessary, here only lessons in the central artistic subject are given.

Admission examinations take place only once a year, for most studies in the summer semester. It is therefore recommended that you start your studies in the following winter semester. If this is not possible for you, a postponement of the start of studies to the following summer semester is also conceivable after consultation with the teacher and approval by the Rectorate. Please report this during the general admission period at the latest, so that the study places can be distributed accordingly.

An exception are the diploma studies in directing and acting, for which the admission procedure takes place in winter. Studies then begin in the following summer semester.

Yes, you can attend lectures before you start your degree programme. However, it is not possible to attend group or individual lessons. To be on the safe side, contact the lecturer before your visit and ask whether it is possible to attend the course once to get to know the university.

Attending lectures with subsequent participation in examinations is with costs and only possible as an extraordinary student upon application. You can find more information HERE.

Depending on the programme, bachelor's, master's, or (rarely) diploma degrees can be earned. In addition, there are also doctoral studies. Specific information on which degrees are offered can be found in the study finder. There you can filter the list of studies by degree.

Yes, for example in the ERASMUS program. You can get information about the possible mobility programs from the International Office.

If you are already studying at the Mozarteum University Salzburg and would like to participate in a mobility program, please also contact the International Office:

Study in Salzburg

Yes, there are several dormitories for students in Salzburg. For more information, feel free to visit our page "Living in Salzburg"! There you will find a list of dormitories as well as other useful tips.

No. However, for students under 26 years of age, the "Klimaticket Salzburg Student" is available for purchase. 

Yes, there are several Mensa restaurants and buffets at the Salzburg university campus. Here, products are mainly sourced from local suppliers and processed further. In addition to the Mensa moi'zeit in the main building (Mirabellplatz 1), you can also visit the other locations. Location overview and offer of meals:

Yes, students may use the offers of the University Sports Institute (USI) at the student rate. The USI offers a wide range of sports for students, university employees and external persons. Timely registration is required for all courses. The current offer as well as further information can be found here.

You can also use the UFZ (USI Fitness Center), where special rates apply.

Admission test

No. For all regular studies at the Mozarteum University Salzburg an admission examination to determine artistic aptitude must be passed.

Yes, only for the teacher training programs (Fine Arts Education, Design:Technology.Textiles, Music Education and Instrumental Music Education) the general university entrance qualification is an important admission requirement. All other studies and courses do not require a general university entrance qualification; only proof of artistic aptitude is decisive there.

Yes, even if you change your place of study, you have to take the admission test. In the application form you can indicate that you have already started your studies at another university and would like to continue them at the Mozarteum University Salzburg. Please upload your Transcript of Records of your current studies in the application, your studies can then be at least partially recognized and you will be able to start from a higher semester.

The number of study places is limited and depends mainly on the free capacities of the teachers in the Central Artistic Subject (ZKF). These vary depending on the number of graduates in the current year. If not enough prospective students pass the entrance examination, it can also happen that study places remain free and are not allocated again until the following year. The admission situation therefore changes annually.

There is a fixed number in the Diploma Program in Acting, where 10 new students can be admitted per cohort.

The percentage of successful applications varies greatly depending on the study program, therefore no general statement can be made. For some studies, only 3-10% of the applicants receive a place, while in other studies it can be over 80%. Quantitatively, the competition is particularly high in the diploma program in acting as well as in the bachelor's and master's programs in piano and voice. In the teacher training programs, on the other hand, a large proportion of applicants pass the entrance examination. Here too, however, there are clear differences between the individual artistic majors.

It is certain that only those who take the entrance examination can be admitted to the program. Therefore, feel free to register, even if you are unsure whether you will pass the exam. In the worst case, you will have gained important experience through your participation, which will increase your chances in the next application procedure.

The examination requirements of the next admission examinations are usually updated on the study pages around the turn of the year.

If the current information is not yet available, you can read through the examination requirements of the past admission procedure in advance. These will give you a good insight, because the requirements usually change only slightly, if at all.

Yes, in principle it is possible to apply for several studies at the same time. Please note, however, that double applications for the same study program in Instrumental (Voice) Pedagogy (IGP) at the two different Mozarteum locations Innsbruck and Salzburg are not possible.

If you receive acceptances for several study places, you are free to decide whether and how many of the places you accept, as long as the studies are located at the same site. It is not possible to be enrolled at the Mozarteum locations in Innsbruck and Salzburg at the same time!

With a passed admission exam, you are entitled to enrol in the semester immediately following the exam, possibly with additional conditions that will be communicated to you when you receive your notification. If this is not possible for you, a postponement of the start of studies to the following semester is also possible after consultation with the lecturers and approval by the Rectorate. Please notify us of this during the general admission period at the latest, so that the study places can be distributed accordingly.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to save up the study place for a later enrolment; the examination expires after one year. Therefore, if you do not apply for the study place in time, but still want to study at the Mozarteum University Salzburg, it is necessary to participate in the admission procedure again.

Example: Admission examination in summer 2023 -> start of studies in winter semester 2023/24 or on application in summer semester 2024; new examination necessary for winter semester 2024/25

The registration period for most admission exams (instrumental studies) is from February 1st to 28th 2024. The application for pedagogical studies as well as Pre-College is from 1st February to 28th March 2024.  Exceptions are the diploma studies Acting and Directing (November/December). Dates are published before the start of the registration period and can be found here.

Attendance at the respective date of the examination in the Central Artistic Subject (ZKF) is necessary in any case. In exceptional cases, some of the other partial examinations can be taken in another week, provided that the necessary capacities are available.

Participation in the examination in the Central Artistic Subject (ZKF) is required in all cases.

The sub-examinations Music Theory and Aural Training as well as Compulsory Piano/Harpsichord can be waived if you are enrolled in a specific Bachelor's program at the time of the admission examination or have graduated from a specific Bachelor's programme within the last three years. Which studies are eligible for this is regulated in the respective implementation guidelines of the individual studies and can be read there.

Information on German language proficiency can be found here: German & English proficiency
If you have already proven the required level for your previous studies, no new proof needs to be submitted.

Study achievements can generally not be used as a substitute for partial examinations. Recognition of academic achievements for the entrance examination is NOT possible.
For reasons of fairness and comparability, all applicants must take part in all partial examinations. The only exceptions are Mozarteum students in certain fields of study - these exceptions are regulated in the implementation guidelines of the respective degree programme.

Passed partial examinations of application procedures at other universities can also NOT be used as substitute performances.

Please bring a valid photo ID or passport to the exam.

No. All those whose first language is German do not need to bring any proof. For all others it is regulated at which time which language level has to be proven. Information on this and a list of valid proofs can be found here: German & English proficiency

Notification is generally made by e-mail. The results of the video review are expected to be communicated until the end of April, the results of the admission test usually within 1-2 weeks. In individual cases (e.g. changes in the composition of the teaching staff) there may be delays. If you still have not received feedback after 3 weeks, please feel free to contact us via email.

Unfortunately, rejections cannot be avoided due to the number of applications and in no way mean that you lack the necessary talent. Take the experience you have gained during the admissions process with you to continue working on yourself. Feel free to reapply next year - you may find that the admissions situation is quite different!

Teacher Education Studies

If you have applied for a secondary (general education) teacher education program and completed the general admission process, but failed the arts admission exam, you have the option of being admitted to another teaching subject at an institution in the respective developmental cluster until the end of the admission period.

You can register to the arts admission exam again in the following year.

There is no official waiting list at the Mozarteum University Salzburg. However, if there are more applicants at the appropriate level than available study places, a waiting list is sometimes set up. In case of cancellations of study places by new students, the next listed applicants will then move up.

You will find out whether there is a waiting list for your desired study program and whether you are listed there in the confirmation e-mail after you have passed the admission test. You will then be informed immediately (by September 30 at the latest) if your admission situation changes.

You can accept the study place within the general admission period (until September 5 in the winter semester or until February 5 in the summer semester) . In individual cases, enrollment is also possible until October 31 (winter semester) or March 31 (summer semester). However, we would appreciate an early response as to whether you will accept the study place in order to be able to plan better.

There is no requirement regarding the cancellation of study places. However, we appeal to your fairness so that study places can be passed on to prospective students on the waiting list if necessary! Therefore, please inform us as soon as possible after receipt of the examination result that you wish to return the study place. If you do not enrol in time, your place will be forfeited.

In order to be admitted next year, you would then have to take another entrance examination.

Admission examinations take place only once a year, for most studies in the summer semester. It is therefore recommended that you start your studies in the following winter semester. If this is not possible for you, a postponement of the start of studies to the following summer semester is also conceivable after consultation with the teacher and approval by the Rectorate. Please report this during the general admission period at the latest so that the study places can be distributed accordingly.

If you neither enrol during the general admission period nor have arranged for a later start of studies, your admission examination will be forfeited. In order to begin studies at the Mozarteum University Salzburg, a new admission examination would then be necessary.

Depending on the curriculum, compulsory subjects, electives and free electives are defined:

  • compulsory subjects are courses that are mandatory for graduation and must be taken by all students in the programme according to the curriculum.
  • Electives (or compulsory electives) are courses that are mandatory for graduation, but can be chosen from a pool of courses (e.g. elective list in the bachelor's program in concert performance). The type and extent of electives to be taken are specified in the curriculum.
  • Free electives are courses that are mandatory for the degree, but can be chosen completely freely (as long as there are no restrictions in the curriculum). The extent of the electives to be taken is determined in the curriculum. In principle, all courses offered at a domestic or foreign recognized post-secondary educational institution (e.g. university, college, recognized conservatory, etc.) can be taken as free electives, provided there is no restriction on the number of participants or special admission requirements have to be met.

Nostrification - recognition of foreign academic degrees

Nostrification is the recognition of a degree obtained at a recognised foreign higher education institution as a degree from a domestic degree programme. The application must be submitted to a domestic university at which the corresponding domestic degree programme is established. The application requires proof that the nostrification is absolutely necessary for the applicant to exercise his or her profession or to continue his or her education in Austria. This means that a nostrification application is only admissible if:

  • the exercise of a profession or activity is compulsorily linked to the possession of an Austrian academic degree or study qualification, i.e. it is not possible without nostrification (this may be stipulated by law or ordinance - so-called "regulated professions"; e.g. civil engineers, teachers at higher schools, certain trades - or in internal general company guidelines)
  • the entitlement to directly exercise this profession or activity does not already exist on the basis of EU regulations.

See also the application form with further explanations.

If you have any questions, please contact the Course & Examination Management.

Applications for nostrification can only be submitted where the corresponding degree programme is offered. In the case of Fachhochschule degrees, the Fachhochschule Council is responsible for nostrification.

If required, a certificate evaluation of a foreign higher education qualification can also be carried out by ENIC NARIC AUSTRIA, information can be found here.

In addition to the evaluation of teaching, studies and service facilities by students, the university surveys its graduates on their completed studies, incoming and outgoing students on their study stay. In addition, evaluations are carried out in numerous other areas, e.g. in the context of appointment procedures, at events in the context of personnel development, at courses of the Career Center, at Pre-College Salzburg and at the International Summer Academy.

Evaluation functions as an important feedback opportunity for students and teachers and offers them the possibility to actively shape their daily study and work routine. In addition to the clear legal requirement that all Austrian universities must conduct regular evaluations, a central quality goal of the Mozarteum University is to offer its students excellent teaching at a top international level and to train internationally competitive and recognized young artistic, scientific and pedagogical talent. The results serve, among other things, as a feedback tool for teachers on their teaching, for curriculum committees on the design of studies, and for service institutions on the further development of their offerings.

All students of the Mozarteum University Salzburg who are registered for courses via MOZonline (online evaluation of teaching, studies and service facilities), who have completed their studies (graduate survey), who have visited the university as part of a semester abroad (incoming survey) or completed a stay abroad at a host university (outgoing survey) are invited to participate in the evaluation. Extraordinary students and students of the "Uni 55-PLUS" are also welcome to evaluate their courses. Students of the Pre-College Salzburg are excluded from the evaluation of teaching, as their courses are evaluated separately.

Annual online evaluation:

  • All teaching staff at the university who have taught courses in the corresponding academic year (it is evaluated at the teaching staff level, not at the course level).
  • University service facilities
  • University studies

Ongoing graduate survey:

  • Satisfaction with studies

Ongoing incoming survey:

  • Satisfaction with the study stay at the Mozarteum University Salzburg

Ongoing outgoing survey:

  • Satisfaction with the study stay at the hoast university abroad

If required: Person-related voluntary evaluation:

  • University lecturer who has undergone a voluntary evaluation and has taught courses in the corresponding academic year (the evaluation is carried out at lecturer level, not at course level).

Students will receive links to the surveys for the previous academic year via email to their MOZ addresses at the end of each summer semester. The surveys can be completed online at any time during the evaluation period (usually 2 months). After completion of the survey, the evaluation team evaluates the survey and forwards the results to the rectorate, the respective teaching staff and any other stakeholders or committees (e.g. department heads, curriculum commissions)

After the end of the evaluation period, the collected feedback is statistically evaluated by the evaluation team. This only happens if at least 4 feedbacks have been received for a teacher. If this is not the case, the teacher will not receive a result in order to preserve the anonymity of the students. If a teacher reaches the anonymity threshold of 4 responses over two years, he or she will receive a summarized result for these years.

The main focus of the university is the responsible handling of the results. In the case of the evaluation of teaching and the service institution, they are sent to the evaluated teacher as well as to the rectorate for their knowledge. The results of the online evaluation are reviewed in a quality circle of the Rectorate with the Department of Quality Management and Development Planning. Subsequently, the Rectorate arranges discussions with individual teachers, department heads or curriculum commissions, if necessary. Heads of administrative departments are also consulted on service and infrastructure issues as needed.

Yes, the participants' answers are treated with the utmost care in order to preserve their anonymity. The questions, a defined response threshold as well as the design of the result evaluation ensure that no conclusions can be drawn about individual students. Any handwritten comments will be transcribed without exception. Any personal information is used exclusively for the purposes of statistical analysis by the evaluation team and will not be passed on to the teachers under any circumstances.

"Anonymity threshold"

A statistical evaluation of the feedback is only possible if at least 4 students have evaluated a teacher or a course. This minimum threshold serves to protect the anonymity of the participants. If fewer than 4 people take part in a survey, their feedback will not be passed on to the lecturers or to the Rectorate. It is possible to create a summarized evaluation result if teachers have been evaluated by a total of at least 4 students in two consecutive academic years.

The vast majority of the University's evaluations are handled through the Evaluation Team in the Division of Quality Management and Development Planning, which is happy to answer questions:

No, student participation in university surveys is voluntary. Nevertheless, the opportunity should be taken to provide feedback and to actively help shape everyday study life. Every participation and the associated positive comments or constructive criticism contribute to maintaining the university's range of services at its high level and to further improving it.

Participation in evaluations is an opportunity to provide the university with experience and to actively shape everyday study life. The university strives to take advantage of as much as possible of the potential for further development that has been identified. Your feedback helps to positively influence the study experience for subsequent generations of students. It is also useful to participate if you are satisfied with the university's range of services and have no specific requests or suggestions. Positive feedback or an expression of basic satisfaction is important feedback for the university and can ensure that certain aspects continue to be maintained.

Can I suffer any disadvantage from participating?

No. Since no conclusions can be drawn about individuals, no negative consequences can arise for you from participation.
