A student looking to study a degree in music should have at least some experience of your chosen instrument or specialisation. A music degree is perfect for any student who is passionate about music, and wishes to further their theoretical and practical knowledge.
As a music student, you will not only study the practical training of your instrumental skills, you will also develop your knowledge of musical theory. This might include music history, performance, arrangement, harmony and music technology.
Your degree will be delivered in a mixture of modes. These could include lectures and seminars, as well as practical projects and performance opportunities. There may be an option for you to participate in a work placement, but this is not guaranteed.
The Netherlands is a great choice for international students, as it has a very large international population that would be ready to make any new international students feel at home. The Netherlands was also one of the first non-native English speaking countries to offer courses taught in English to international students. The Dutch people have a long standing reputation of being tolerant and open minded, meaning you will feel welcomed and comfortable as soon as you arrive in the country.
