Admission to the Bachelor´s Programme Voice

Admission to the Bachelor´s Programme Voice presupposes the passing of an entrance exam. The entrance exam consists of two parts (a written part and a vocal one).


Two optionally registration deadlines are provided each year for the entrance exam: 13 January (entrance exam in January/February) for the Summer Term and 3 June (entrance exam in June/July) for the Winter Term.


Please apply online for the entrance exam according to the respective application deadline.

See here for the required German language competency for studies at application/admission.


Entrance Exam for the Bachelor´s Programme Voice:

  • Written Part:

    • The written entrance exam tests basic knowledge of the rudiments of music as well as listening ability:

      • Aural test
      • Basic Rudiments of Music

In addition to the written part a sight-singing test (simple melodic and rhythmic tasks) takes place.

Here you can find further important information about the exam prerequisites.


The successfully passing of the first part entitles you to go on with the second part.


  • Vocal Part:

    • Perform three pieces (Lieder or arias) of different characters and by different composers to demonstrate vocal ability.
    • One piece has to be in German language. The performance has to be by memory.
    • Further tests may be carried out in order to determine vocal quality.
    • In case you need an accompanist, please bring the appropriate music score with you to the entrance exam!


Please mind: After passing the entrance exam you are not automatically admitted to the Study Programme – the enrolment has to be done personally at the Registrar´s Office (Palais Meran, Leonhardstrasse 15, ground floor) in time! See also “How will I be admitted to the study program?
