First Cycle QF-EHEA – Level 6 EQF
Authorised and recognised by the Ministry for Education, University and Research, the Level I three year academic program (“Triennio”) is the first stage in artistic and musical higher education in Italy.
The qualification at the end of the program is a Level I academic diploma which is equivalent to a three-year degree from an Italian university and enables access to public employment as well as further academic studies (Level II graduated academic courses, master’s degree). This degree program is consistent with all European musical training programs
Access to the Level I academic program is also open to high school students who are allowed to attend classes but cannot be a candidate for a degree unless they obtained high school diploma.
Prospective students must pass an admissions test in order to prove that they possess the adequate musical background necessary to succeed in the program. The content of the entrance examination, as well as the curriculum for each degree program, can be downloaded from the table below. The degree program as all Italian university courses is made up of 180 credits.
The three-year degree program can include internships and work experiences as well as participation in the Erasmus international exchange program and access to university grants and support.
CONDITIONAL ADMISSION (Debiti formativi)
Students who are unable to pass the second part of the examination (Teoria, Lettura della partitura, Pratica pianistica) may be declared ADMITTED CONDITIONALLY, with the requirement that they must complete certain subjects by the end of the first year of the program.
