Bachelor of Music in Composition
Composition students receive individual tuition in composing as well as in subjects such as compositional techniques, sonology, electronics and music history, analysis and aural training. The applicants should have a good knowledge in arranging and composition, and experience in these fields.
Throughout the programme, experimentation and individual creation will go hand in hand with acquiring skills and knowledge.
Applicants must meet the minimum academic requirements for admission to Norwegian colleges and universities and must also pass the audition in week 11. A high musical level is expected, as well as good aural skills and solid knowledge of music theory. Entrance to the limited number of places open is competitive.
Admission requires sufficient language proficiency to follow Norwegian instructions. Language skills must either be documented by a test or you can choose to do an interview in Norwegian during the audition week.
Admission to 2nd module
Admission to the 2nd module (years 3 and 4) requires minimum two years of higher music education equivalent to the 1st module of Bachelor of Music in Composition (120 ECTS credits). Course instruction in the 2nd module is in Norwegian. Language skills must be documented by a test.
