Study advice and support

As a student, you belong to one of the six KMH departments, on the basis of your study programme. Each department takes care of a lot of various courses and subjects. Each department has a Department Head (prefekt), assisted by one or more Directors of Study (studierektor). In addition, one particular teacher is given a main responsibility for a certain subject or field – for example woodwind instruments or ear training. This teacher is called ”ämnesansvarig”.

Each student is assigned a Mentor, a teacher who is to provide support in your study planning at large, for example to advice you which courses to choose in order to form your individual study profile according to your wishes. The mentor is also to follow up the progress of your studies and to help you on your way to professional life.

The Study Centre

For exchange and guest students, most administrative matters will be handled by the Student Affairs Office.
International students within the regular programmes should turn to the Study Centre in order to register. This is also the place where records of study results are kept and diplomas issued. Here, you can:

  • report change of address, telephone or name
  • get study documentation and certificates
  • apply for a diploma after completed programme
  • apply for study intermission (ask for KMH's policy)
  • cancel your study place

You find the Study Centre in the upper level of Ljusgården, in room A 440

Office hours:
13.30-15.30 (13-16 at the beginning of a semster)
Tel.: 08-16 32 00
E-mail: studiecentrum@kmh.se

If you are in doubt where to ask, the Student Affairs Office will always try to help all international students.

Absence rules

If you are unable to come to the lessons or orchestra rehearsals/performances you should call the answering machine 08-16 18 72 and state your name and what lessons you are going to miss. Please state also the name of the teacher(s) concerned.

If you are going to be absent from an individual lesson, please also tell the teacher directly.


If you are unable to take part in the work/performance with an ensemble, you have to find – in consultation with the teacher concerned – a stand-in, so that your absence will not affect the work of the ensemble.

For the symphony orchestra there are special rules – ask the orchestra manager.
