Classical Master's Degree Programme

Personal Curriculum

Each Classical master’s student follows an individually designed curriculum. The curriculum will be drawn up in consultation with the head of their section, principal subject teacher(s), research supervisor and study advisor. In this way, the student can make an optimal combination of courses and activities, tailored to their personal level, potential, ambitions and future professional profile and field of work.

The curriculum always consists of four main components, with a study load that is the same for all students:

Curriculum

These four components offer a lot of room for personal choices. For example, in the principal subject component students can opt for additional (individual) lessons on a related (historical) instrument, chamber music, orchestral playing, répétiteurship, masterclasses, new music, electronic music and much more. 

Additionally, the diversity of research expertise and facilities, a large and varied range of electives and the many possibilities to fill in the free space, both inside and outside the conservatory, give students ample opportunity to compose a personal curriculum at a high international level. 

Each study, each final exam and each alumnus thus acquires their own strong musical identity, in which the artistic personality and wishes regarding the future career are paramount.
