Programme Description

Students admitted to the Artist Diploma programme for solo instrumentalists and chamber music ensembles (only established ensembles can apply), are chosen after an audition in which the applicants’ artistic and interpretative abilities are carefully evaluated. The programme includes several demanding concert engagements. Very few students are admitted each year; they are selected with the expectation of soloist or ensemble performance activity at an international level. The programme leads to a Master’s Degree in Music Performance.

At the end of the two-year programme, graduating candidates give a concert presentation of their diploma work.

Students of orchestral instruments admitted to the programme can audition for internships at the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra and the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra. The internship audition is in addition to the Academy audition. Students accepted to the internships programme receive a scholarship (6 projects a year, NOK 10.000 per project).

Successful completion of the programme will provide the basic formal qualifications for admission to Ph.D. programmes and the Artistic Research Programme.
