Expand your horizons by studying abroad, an experience you will never forget.
Hear the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. Play in an American college big band. Attend open mic nights in Ljubljana. Take a weekend trip to see the Grand Canyon.

What you can study abroad
You can continue your studies in the subjects we offer at the School of Music, such as performance, composition, music history and film music. You may also study new subjects such as music therapy and music psychology, conducting, jazz composition and composing for film, TV and video games, subject to availability at your host institution.
Most of our partner universities provide instruction in English, but those studying in Europe may also have the opportunity to study in the respective country’s national language.
Our weekly language lunches bring together our international community of students and staff, with the opportunity to speak in various languages with native speakers and other language learners.
Practice your language skills, converse with students from our international partner institutes, and prepare yourself for study abroad.
