  • you must have completed at least two semesters of a Bachelor's or Master's degree at your home university
  • enrolment at your home university during your associate studentship

The associate studentship allows you to pursue your chosen subject in the context of German culture, in particular the culture of Thuringia and the historic town of Weimar; you will encounter specific teaching methods, materials, and interpretations nurtured at the University of Music Weimar.

The studentship's central focus lies on the programme's core subject / the main performance option. Further courses such as chamber music, musicological lectures, minor options in piano, Lied performance, repertoire studies, etc. may be selected depending on the teaching capacities available. A teaching plan is determined at the beginning of the programme. Students of orchestral instruments are required to perform with the University's orchestra if requested to do so. In general, associate students do not obtain the right to be examined. Degrees cannot be obtained in this programme.

The official regulations for admission ('Immatrikulationsordnung') to the University of Music FRANZ LISZT Weimar regulate the application and enrolment process.
