Special features of the music education course

Music Education Courses start only in the winter semester. Please apply from 1 March to 1 May.

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 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.

Why apply at the hmt?

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.
  • Professional conditions
    With more than 300 public events a year, the university offers you many opportunities to give public performances in 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, sound studios, a multimedia studio and a well-stocked library.
  • International flair
    Our students come from more than 40 different countries. The university itself also has an extensive network of international contacts, and offers its students opportunities for cultural encounters and exchange throughout the world.
