About this website

In this section, information on more than 240 European conservatoires, music academies, Musikhochschulen or music universities affiliated with the European Association of Conservatoires (AEC)
can be found. The information includes links to the websites of the institutions, as well as names of contact persons for international students, and details on study programmes, teachers and application procedures (when available).
National Higher Music Education Systems
Europe consists of many different countries that each have a different system for higher music education and training. In this section information can be found on the various national systems for higher music education and training. The descriptions of these systems are structured in such a way that they can be compared and, to make comparisons with systems in countries outside Europe possible, include countries in- and outside Europe.
In this section, information about the international recognition of studies and qualifications in higher music education can be found. Students interested in a shorter study period (e.g. one year) or in continuing their studies in another country after already having finished a degree in their home country, may be interested in the tools that exist for the recognition of studies, such as credit points and the Diploma Supplement. Students may also be interested to know in which countries their qualifications will be recognised and where they can find more information about recognition procedures in the various countries. The ‘Mundus Musicalis’ project has collected information on these issues in relation to higher music education and published this information in various publications.
