Second Cycle QF-EHEA – Level 7 EQF
The Level II two-year graduate degree program (“Biennio”) is recognised by the Ministry for Education, University and Research and authorized through decree 5.10.2018 and decree 19.02.2019 which reformed the structure of the music higher education in Italy. A level II graduate diploma is obtained at the end of the Level II degree program and is equivalent to a two-year graduate diploma from an Italian university as a master’s degree or research degree (doctorate). It is also a requirement for teaching in state schools.
To enroll in the Level II degree program it is necessary to have a Level I academic qualification (three-year degree), or alternatively, a degree or conservatory diploma plus an high school diploma (or equivalent qualification from abroad). Prospective students pass an admissions test in order to prove that they possess the adequate musical background necessary to succeed in the program. Details regarding the entrance examination, as well as the specific modules for each degree program, can be downloaded from the table below.
The degree program, just like most Italian university graduate programs, is made up of 120 study credits. The program can include internships and work experience as well as participation in the Erasmus international exchange program and access to university grants and support.
