How to apply to the academic PhD Programme at the Norwegian Academy of Music (NMH).


  • Application deadline: 1 February
  • Start-up date: 1 September


Most students who apply for admission to the PhD Programme, also apply for PhD positions at the Norwegian Academy of Music.

Appointment to PhD positions and admission to the PhD programme are both parts of the same application process. You may apply for admission to the PhD Programme without applying for a PhD position if documentation of external funding is provided. All applicants must use the same application form, also those who apply with external funding.
