Why apply to hmt?

Studying at hmt – this means intensive learning in a family atmosphere at one of Germany’s most beautiful college buildings, the Katharinenstift in the heart of Rostock’s old town. We offer ideal conditions for a successful course of study in music, theatre or music education.

  • Intensive support and flexible structures
    A good college course has to be based around the requirements of the student’s future artistic or educational career. Along with a challenging course of artistic training, the college consequently sets great store by practical experience and variable study structures which take changing requirements in the student’s future profession into account. We also support you when you start your career after completing your course.

    With more than 300 public events a year, the college offers you many opportunities to give public performances in highly professional conditions: we have a concert hall and theatre with a full stage and an orchestra pit which can be lowered, a chamber music room, an organ room, digital sound studios, a multimedia studio and a well-stocked library.
  • International flair
    Our students come from more than 40 different countries. The college itself also has an extensive network of international contacts, and offers its students opportunities for cultural encounters and exchange throughout the world.

Special features of the music education course

If you decide to study music education (for secondary school/high school or drama in education), you will have to study another subject in the Faculty of Philosophy at Rostock University.

Depending on the form of education and the subject you choose, you will have to register at Rostock University in good time or submit an application if student numbers for your chosen subject are restricted. Passing the aptitude test at hmt Rostock will make admission to the university easier, as this automatically admits you to a prior selection process.

As the university is not too huge, the atmosphere here resembles the one of a big family. That does not only promote better communication among students, but also a closer relationship to the instructors. Yet there are many opportunities to perform in one of the numerous concerts. I even came to play repeatedly as soloist with an orchestra, which is rather uncommon elsewhere. The hmt combines musical education with an enjoyable setting for living and learning.
