Admission requirements

In order to be admitted, you will complete a practical video audition and an online theory test. When in doubt, we invite you to do a live audition at FHK. In addition, you should prove being in possession of a diploma of higher secondary education, as well as having sufficient English proficiency.

Only after admission to the Academy of Music and Performing Arts (so after the audition) you have to send documents like diplomas and (languages) certificates. So ignore the request of Studielink!


The practical video audition forms the core of your admission to the program. In the overview of classical and jazz main subjects, you will find the admission requirements for your main subject.

Singing: If you passed the first round you will be invited to the second round.

Theory test

In addition, you will complete a theory test to demonstrate your knowledge of music theory. You can find a practice test below, with audio tracks and an answer key:

Required theoretical knowledge

You will be invited for a theory test after a positive assessment of your online audition.
