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, please find more information here. Students complete the full curriculum within four years.

Student by contract

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.

Please note: it is not possible to get a residence permit for study by contract.
