What I like about the master's programme, besides the subject matter, is the good communication with the teachers and individual supervision. There are also many opportunities to study abroad. I can warmly recommend the course to anyone who wants to work with signal processing or acoustics.

Joint Degree Programme

This is a joint degree programme of TU Graz and the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz.

Students of the programme choose one of the universities as their home university where they enrol as a regular student and where they will be awarded their degree. Students take courses at both universities.

Admission colloquium

Please submit the transcript of records of your bachelor’s degree and certificates demonstrating your existing level of musical/artistic education to the KUG Registration Office by 1 March.

After that you will be invited to an interview in which we will decide what supplementary courses you may need to take, and whether you have to sit the entrance examination in September.
