Admission to the Master's Programme Voice, Concert Singing or Opera Performance requires the completion of a Bachelor´s Degree in Voice at an Austrian University of Music and Performing Arts or another equivalent Vocal Study Programme at a recognized post-secondary educational institution. Moreover the applicants have to pass a vocal audition by an examination board.

In the course of the required online-application for the respective Master´s Programme we would need the following documents in time to the application deadline (1 May for the Winter Term / 1 December for the Summer Term) in order to be able to forward your documents to our Dean of Studies for checking the equivalency of your preliminary studies:

Only after the Dean of Studies has confirmed the equivalency of your preliminary studies you will be notified for the vocal audition.

Depending on the chosen Master´s Programme - Voice, Concert Singing or Opera Performance - different works have to be prepared for the vocal audition. Here you can find the respective entrance requirements.

Please mind: After passing the vocal audition 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?”
