Contract study AMPA
The Academy of Music and Performing Arts (formerly: Fontys Conservatorium) and the Master of Music offer a wide variety of courses you can follow if you have the required level. When you are interested we arrange a contract with a fixed prize for every module. For all courses you will need to do an admission exam with the exeption of Music History and Cultural Theory. The courses indicated in English will be taught in English. The other courses are in Dutch.
The enrollment for Contract Study is an individual agreement between the Institute AMPA and you as ‘contractant’. So, you will not subscribe via Studielink, nor will you be connected to DUO. So to be absolutely clear, you will not get any possibilities for study fees or OV-kaart (travel reduction). However, as contract student you will have the same rights and duties as regular students with all related facilities (study possibilities, library, etc.). You can get a student card on request. The institute is allowed to deny the renewal or extention of a contract when, due to a lack of improvement, talent or motivation, the continuation of the Contract Study is not usefull.
For those who want - and are able/allowed to as far as the level is concerned - to study Conservatory level courses next to their profession/job.
To apply for an entrance exam you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org mentioning Contract Study. As soon as you are admitted and the contract is approved, you will receive a message from the Student Administration how to enroll.
Following courses via Contract Study will not lead to an offcial Conservatory Diplome. Nevertheless, you will get an official, verified certificate, that you followed courses on Conservatory level.
