How To Enrol
After having been admitted, students may enrol as a student at the Conservatory. It is possible to do this online through Studielink, the portal for enrolment in higher education in the Netherlands. Studielink allows students to arrange their applications for (re-)enrolment, cancellation or change of address at a single location on-line. With the Proof of Admittance students will receive further information on how to use Studielink.
After enrolment, students of the professional training programmes receive a student card via the Amsterdam University of the Arts. This card allows free access or price reductions on tickets for concerts, professional literature, sheet music etc., and for activities organised by the Amsterdam University of the Arts.

Please note: the tuition fee for AEMA Hybrid is the same as for the regular AEMA programme, and does not cover traveling and lodging expenses for the required weeks in Amsterdam. The conservatory is not responsible for travel and accommodation arrangements.
Please find more information about financial matters and studying on the website of the Amsterdam University of the Arts.
Forms of Enrolment
There are two forms of enrolment: as a student (full-time), or as student by contract.
Anyone can, after admission, enrol as a student, but there are various fee levels. Students complete the full bachelor curriculum within four years.
Every year the Conservatorium van Amsterdam offers a limited number of candidates te possibility to study by contract. This form of enrolment is only open to candidates who already have finished a musical education or are employed as a musician professionally.
Students by contract take a limited number of subjects. Thus an agreement is made with the conservatory about the subjects to be studied. The tuition fee is determined by the number and the sort of lessons (group or individual). Students by contract receive a certificate which states the subjects taken and the exam results.
