Individual Programme


Do you have an artistic orientation or instrumental profile that does not seem to fit within the other artistic programmes in music? Then you can apply for our Bachelor's degree – Individual programme. It is aimed at students who have a musical and artistic genre profile that is not found in our other programmes and specialisations. Maybe you play the guitar and perform self-composed music or have a laptop as your main instrument? The Individual Programme gives you the opportunity to develop as an instrumentalist/singer within the musical genre that you represent.

To be a candidate for the Individual Programme, you must want to develop both your musical idea and your practical music making at the same time. Please note that the Individual Programme is not for singer- songwriters or music producers – if that is what you are interested in there are independent one-year courses that you can apply to instead.

The Individual programme is also aimed at groups/ensembles who want to develop their music and repertoire together. If that is your case, please note that everyone in the group/ensemble must register for the programme. You will also complete some parts of the admission test together during the week of admission.

All applicants must be able to clearly describe their art, their role as musicians and musical activities as well as their planned progression and goals with the programme. Before you register we therefore ask you to carefully read through the syllabus to understand how the programme is structured.

The repertoire you submit with your application and play as your entrance exam must clearly represent your musical and artistic profile and maintain a high technical and artistic level.

The planning of your studies at the Individual programme takes place in consultation with a programme coordinator. As it is very open in nature with fewer scheduled lesson sessions compared to any of our other Bachelor's programmes, great experience is therefore required in working independently and taking initiatives.
