ECMAster students spend semesters 1 and 4 at their home institution and semesters 2 and 3 at two different host institutions. Exchange semesters at partner institutions and intensive programmes are both obligatory in this master programme.
It is expected that the ensemble should spend the two exchange semesters in the respective city of the host institution.
Each ensemble is appointed a principal artistic supervisor from the home institution and artistic supervisors form each host institution. The responsibility of the principal artistic supervisor is to have regular contact with the students, to have a full overview of the ensemble’s progression and to act as a contact person for the other institutions’ artistic supervisors.
Intensive modules (ECMA Sessions)
The ensembles are committed to attend a minimum of 6 ECMA sessions within the two years, normally one session in semesters 1 and 4, and two sessions in semesters 2 and 3. In semesters 2 and 3, one of the sessions will be at the host institution.
The programme is open to established ensembles with a standard instrument combination:
All applicants must possess the skills and experience listed below at a level sufficient for them to meet the requirements of this programme of study both individually and as an ensemble.
