Eligibility means what prior knowledge is required to be able to complete the programme or course. You need to meet the general entry requirements for all higher education in Sweden. In addition, most programmes and courses also require specific entry requirements. You submit documentation of previous studies on universityadmissions.se.
General entry requirements
You need to meet the general entry requirements for all higher education in Sweden, no matter which programme or course you apply to. The general entry requirements depend on what level you are applying to – Bachelor's level (first-cycle studies) or Master's level (second-cycle studies).
To meet the general entry requirements for first-cycle studies (Bachelor's level studies), you must have successfully completed your upper-secondary education (high school/post-16 education). In addition, you need a good knowledge of the Swedish and English language, equal to the Swedish upper-secondary courses Swedish 3 and English 6. A passed TISUS-test for the Swedish language is accepted.
To meet the general entry requirements for second-cycle studies (Master's level studies), you must have a Bachelor's degree (equivalent to a Swedish kandidatexamen) from an internationally recognised university. At KMH, most of the Master's programmes require a Degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts in Music, 180 credits.
For most of our Master's programmes there are no language requirements for admission. Although the language of instruction officially is Swedish, international students can, in most cases, get tuition in English.
Specific entry requirements
The specific entry requirements depend on which education you apply for.
In addition to the general entry requirements, there are specific entry requirements for most programmes and courses at KMH. These specific entry requirements usually consist of entrance examinations and music theory tests. For some programmes, you are also required to send in a portfolio. Information about entrance examinations is available on each programme page, so called test descriptions.
The specific entry requirements can also be a previous degree, a special course or proof that you have studied higher music education/at university level before. On each programme- or course page, you will find information about the required qualifications.
Results of entrance examinations form basis of selection
Since almost all programmes and courses have a surplus of applicants, a selection has to be made. The results of the entrance examinations form the basis for this selection. Eligible applicants who are not offered a place in the first selection, will be placed in reserve and will only be accepted if a vaccancy occurs.
If you have the knowledge but not the grades
If you do not fulfil the entry requirements through formal qualifications you can apply to get your eligibility evaluated based on knowledge acquired in other ways.
