The duration of IPAC Music Academy’s “Musikhochschule” Degree program is dependent primarily on the single student’s performance potential. Flexibility in deciding the course of your studies and consideration of both educational
backgrounds and learning rates are central ideas of this concept, thus following one of the basic ideas of the Bologna accord: goal orientation. It therefore goes without saying that degrees here can be completed on a full- or part-time basis:
working alongside studies and family life should not impede studying, as long as the student demonstrates the necessary amount of competence in planning and time management. This will be taken into account at your acceptance interview, scheduling meeting and also with your Learning Agreement.
The standard time period to complete the Master’s of Arts in Music Performance (instrumental/vocal Music) is 4 full-time semesters. If you intend to be a part-time student, the time may be extended to a maximum of 6 semesters. If you are highly gifted and demonstrate an exceptional amount of
effort and/or an appropriate educational background, allowing for professional experiences and previous studies, an intense period of studies will be considered.
The arrangement and duration of studies will be established at the scheduling meeting at the beginning of your studies and are to be recorded in the Learning Agreement.
