Documentation

You have to upload all required documents in UiO’s online application portal. In addition to the general documents required, you must also submit:

  • A digital portfolio: The digital portfolio will be the basis of the assessment of your music technological competence. When you apply, you should therefore provide the link to a website (a personal page, Vimeo, YouTube, SoundCloud, etc.) with relevant material documenting your knowledge and skills relevant to the programme. The portfolio should include former projects, and could be of both academic and artistic nature. If you include work that is produced together with others, it is important to clearly describe your contribution. There is no limit to the size of the portfolio, but the quality of the material is more important than the number of projects and files included.

  • Letter of motivation: We ask all applicants to our programme to add a Letter of motivation where you elaborate on your interest in the programme, with reference to previous experiences from work and/or studies. The letter should be no more than two pages.
