How to apply to Composition

Published: 23 January 2020

The University seeks applicants who demonstrate awareness, introspection and self-sufficiency in their artistry in addition to high-level musical competence. It is thus of particular distinction if the applicant can indicate in the application a potential topic for the degree project, which is a central aspect of the programme. Since there is no set model for the degree project, it is advantageous if the applicant is particularly passionate about a specific topic and has an awareness of both the subject to be explored, as well as the goals to be achieved.

Your application in two steps

1. Apply at universityadmissions.se

Last day of application is found on the Master Programme website and on universityadmissions.se.
