Studying at hmt – this means intensive learning in a creative atmosphere at one of Germany’s most beautiful university 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 university 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 university 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.
