Study programmes higher education

The Dutch educational system has a bachelor-master structure. After the bachelor’s course, you can take a follow-up course: a more advanced course or a master’s course.

Admission

A high level is required for admission to a course in one of the arts. The criteria for admission are laid down by law for each discipline. Not only talent but also experience and training are necessary. Some institutions often offer orientation courses that can be followed in addition to regular education, for example on Saturdays.

Most courses in an arts disciplines have selection rounds that determine whether a person can be admitted as a student. You can find information about that on the websites of the relevant institutes. If you are admitted for a particular course, that does not mean that you can switch to a different institute with a similar course.

Elke instelling biedt diverse opleidingen aan op het gebied van muziek, zoals verschillende richtingen binnen klassiek, jazz, pop, wereldmuziek en docentopleidingen. Onderstaande conservatoria bieden ten minste bacheloropleidingen aan, soms ook masters.
