Master courses since 1995

The Summer Campus took place for the first time in 1995 – one year after the foundation of Rostock University. Cooperation with the international Association of Baltic Academies of Music (ABAM) has been one of its core aims from the beginning. That means that students of the ABAM institutions are entitled to get a scholarship or pay a reduced fee.

Since 2005, the Summer Campus has been organised in close co-operation with the Festspielen Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and the Norddeutschen Rundfunk (NDR). Special support for the Summer Campus is provided by the Ministry of Education, Science and Cultural Affairs of the State of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the association “Friends and Supporters of the Rostock University of Music and Theatre e.V.”, the Norddeutschen Rundfunk (NDR) und Rostock Port.
