To look at the bigger picture, expand horizons and learn from others.
The University of Music and Theatre Rostock has built a large and diverse network of international cooperations. The focus of international cooperation lies on the exchange. Every year, students of the hmt Rostock study at a partner university. Since the professors of the hmt Rostock hold guest lectures at partner universities, they are familiar with the universities and colleges and can advise their students in the selection. The main international programs in which the hmt Rostock participates are the ABAM of the SOCRATES and ERASMUS+ program of the European Union. Participation in these programs is easier and less complicated than an individual application at a foreign university. Those who switch to other universities within the program, do not pay tuition fees. In addition, the student will receive a monthly mobility allowance, depending on the resources available.
Association of Baltic Academies of Music
The Association of Baltic Academies of Music (ABAM) comprises 16 music colleges in the states adjoining the Baltic and offers our students the opportunity to take part in orchestral projects every year, also outside Germany. It also makes it possible for professors and students to undertake exchanges in northern and eastern Europe.
The association is made up of colleges from Germany, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland and Sweden. The Rubin Academy of Music and Dance in Jerusalem is an associate member.

Explorations in Music in Education
Various European colleges which train school music teachers work together to offer annual courses known as "Explorations in Music in Education", since 2012 called "Musical interaction and learning in schools and communities". Besides the hmt Rostock, the colleges involved are:
- College of Nyiregyháza (Hungary)
- Umeå University (Sweden)
- Liverpool Hope University (UK)/since 2012
- College und Manchester Metropolitan University (UK)
- Copenhagen Institut for Social Educators (Denmark)
- Lemmens Instituut Leuven (Belgium)
- Colleges in Polen and Norway
These colleges are linked by the European college programmes ERASMUS/SOKRATES, and the partnership is organised under the roof of the International Working Group for MUSIC EDUCATION for the northern countries of Europe (ArGe Nord).
This partnership enables lecturers and students on music education courses to familiarise themselves with the educational and didactic goals and procedures of teaching music to children and young people at general schools in the various countries and to put them into practice in their own work.
The “Explorations in Music in Education” were first held in 1997 and take place every alternate year at one of the colleges belonging to ArGe Nord.
Study abroad/ Erasmus+
The Erasmus+ Study programm enables students (and teachers) to study abroad at a partner university. Interesting advantages are: the possibility of aceptence of the credit points achived at the partner university and also to receive funding from the Deutschen Akademischen Auslandsdienst (DAAD).
You will find information concerning the organisation of the Erasmus+ study programm here.
