Admission to a Postgraduate University Course (PGL) requires the closure of a subject-related master's or diploma degree at a recognized Austrian or foreign postsecondary educational institution in the respective central artistic subject. Admission with a pedagogical degree such as teaching or instrumental & vocal pedagogy is NOT possible.
A prerequisite for admission to a university course is also the successful completion of the admission examination. For this, an online registration is required first, during which the necessary documents are checked. An invitation to the admission examination will only be issued after the completely submitted documents have been checked.
ATTENTION: The examination of the documents of the preliminary studies can take up to 4 weeks! Early registration is therefore recommended.
Required documents for online registration
- Bachelor certificate and Master certificate or final certificate of an equivalent study program, if the study program has already been completed
- Current confirmation of enrollment, if the study program has not yet been completed (the transcript must be submitted by the time of enrollment!)
- Overview of subjects and grades of the BA and MA studies (Transcript of Records)
- Official confirmation of the main subject/instrument, if this is not evident from the other documents (e.g. "Bachelor of Music" is not sufficient!)
Form of documents
- The documents can be uploaded as PDF in the registration form.
- If the documents mentioned are not available in German or English, an official translation.
If you have received an invitation to the admission examination on the basis of your application video, an audition must be held on site to determine your artistic aptitude.
The program presented must include representative pieces from several styles or periods for the respective instrument, taking into account the technical and stylistic diversity. At least four works of different styles in at least two different languages must be prepared, of which:
- One monodic work from the first half of the 17th century (e.g. by C. Monteverdi, F. Cavalli, H. Schütz, H. Lawes)
- One longer recitative (semplice/secco, no accompagnato) by G.Ph. Telemann
- One opera aria from the 18th century (e.g. by G.Fr. Händel or A. Vivaldi)
- One solo aria from a cantata, mass, passion or oratorio by J.S. Bach
- One spoken piece (poem, excerpt from a dramatic work, novel) in the candidate's own native language
The examination committee selects a performance time of approximately 15 minutes from this program. In addition, there will be an interview with the examination board. The applicant can bring a continuo player, but a harpsichordist and harpsichords in A=415 Hz and A=440 Hz are available.
