The Faculty of Fine Arts, Department of Classical Music and Music Education is now offering the Bachelor Programme in Music Performance in English, which opens the programme for international students from all over the world.
The Bachelor Programme in Music Performance is designed to enable students to accomplish their musical potential and to prepare them for a future career through a variety of learning modules.
The Instrumental lectures consist of one-to-one tuition, workshops, masterclasses, chamber music and orchestral- and opera projects. The students get unlimited opportunities to perform in concerts, and to take part in projects with our professional partners in the Southern Norwegian region.
As a bachelor student at the UiA Classical Music Department, you will be challenged, motivated, inspired and prepared for a career in music. You will meet high-profiled performers strongly motivated to help you to develop as a musician!
One of our lecturers is Cordula Hacke, Professor of Chamber Music. Apart from her regular teaching, she also arranges workshops, concerts and projects for the students on an international level. She says:
"It is very important to have an international community of students at UiA’s Department of Classical Music and Music Education. This contributes immensely to the learning environment and broadens every student’s view of the world. Their openness, motivation and curiosity will be even more enhanced when other nationalities will bring new learning cultures and work ethics"
Head of Music Performance Programs, Professor Jørn Schau, says:
"Opening the Bachelor-programme for International students is a milestone. Within the fields of Classical music, human resources and artistic impulses have travelled across boarders for centuries and the International perspectives have always been important. We have, as most Norwegian universities, taken part in the International exchange systems since the beginning, and I am convinced that an English bachelor will be a major step to further strengthen the International strategy. I am very happy to be a Faculty member of the first Norwegian music education that welcomes International students to its entire cycle of Instrumental study-programmes"
The University of Agder has a lot to offer to international students:
Non EU- students must pay a student deposit, which will be refunded after enrolment and their first semester registration. The students must be able to finance their own housing and living expenses.
