Art and Pedagogy

Performance and Pedagogy Study programmes at the ABPU comprise a common foundation of core subjects. Building on this base, students may choose performance or pedagogy modules, even allowing students to complete both study programmes by fulfilling the requirements for both.

Studies and Professional Experience

Early on in their studies, students are afforded an opportunity to gain professional experience, as participation in numerous projects - executed in collaboration with various orchestras, concert and theatre venues, the Upper Austrian Musicschool Network, kindergartens and other educational institutions – constitutes an integral part of the curriculum.

Entrance requirements

Admission to ABPU requires passing an entrance exam - it is not mandatory to hold a general qualification for university entrance. A BA Degree is a prerequisite for admission to the Master programmes. Proof of proficiency in the German language (Performance: A2 (CEFR) / Pedagogy: B1 (CEFR)) is required by the beginning of the third semester. Entrance exams take place in June or September, depending on the desired study programme.
