This information concerns the Master's programme in Music Drama.


NOTE! No application 2019.

Admission process

(the following applied to students starting their studies autumn 2018)


to the Master's program in Music Drama with a personal project idea in the field of music drama. The project idea should be written on max three A4 pages.

In addition to the project idea itself, you should also enclose a CV and describe how you want to complete your project in terms of form, timetabling, presentation etc.

You can also add audio files, video clips or other material to your application, if you wish.

For the purpose of handling and reviewing work samples, we use an external service provided by SlideRoom Technologies Inc. By using the service, you agree that the University of Gothenburg may handle your personal data and material submitted via SlideRoom in order to evaluate your application for education. The material you upload remains with SlideRoom until you choose to remove it from their servers.

Here you can register to SlideRoom and upload your work samples. You can upload your work samples from 1 December 2017 through 1 February 2018.
NOTE! Material you have uploaded to SlideRoom can no longer be edited or deleted.

The University of Gothenburg may, by individual agreement with the applicant and in a way that the university decides, offer an alternative opportunity to submit work samples.

Admissions Test

The draft project idea is the first part of your admission test.

If the admission group so decides, the applicant is then called for an interview during week 10 (2018). At the interview, the applicant is expected to account for her/his artistic practice and to give a more detailed description of the project idea. This can be done by providing documentation or a shorter performance. The personal project idea forms the basis for the independent work (degree work) of the students who are accepted.

The admissions group takes a decision based on an overall assessment of the applicant's merits, artistic project idea and performative skills.

To Work With a Project Shared by Several

It is possible to apply for the programme with a project that is, for example, related to other applicants' projects or which is part of a work outside the school. Perhaps you belong to a group where several people are interested in applying for our programme or you have a project idea that is part of the work of others.
Note that you are applying for the programme as an individual, and as a student you will be examined in the different courses and in the education as a whole based on your own work.

Entrance Requirements

An artistic bachelor's degree, or equivalent, as well as the theoretical knowledge and skills that are being examined at the entrance examination. Professional experience in musical theatre / opera / music drama is a requirement. In addition, language skills equivalent to English B / English 6 are required.


Selection is based on admission tests.


Students with citizenship in countries not within the EU/EEA, or Switzerland, are required to pay application and tuition fees for university studies in Sweden. Details about fees for this programme are available on the University of Gothenburg main website under Education/Courses and Programmes.


Applicants who are citizens in countries outside the EU/EEA (or Switzerland), and who are required to pay tuition fees, are encouraged to apply for scholarships. Some scholarships will cover either the full cost of the tuition fees for the programme, or a significant part of that fee.

Make sure that you read the application instructions carefully and that you understand when the application should be submitted (some scholarships require that you apply before you are admitted to the programme).
