Mannheim, Germany

Partner University Website


The Mannheim University of Music and Performing Arts is the second-largest institution of its kind in Baden-Wuerttemberg. The University acts as a link between the cultural area of the Rhine Neckar triangle (Electoral Palatinate) and other important cultural regions through close partner relations with leading universities throughout the world. This opened the doors to many large events being held on this campus, like the United Student Orchestra Tour of Seoul National University. In addition to concerts and theatre performances, academic conferences and symposiums are of vital importance as well as master classes held by international artists and teachers.

When students are not studying, they can explore the local city of Mannheim and all the beautiful parks and museums it has to offer.

Academic Subjects

The main subjects that are taught at the University include: orchestral instruments, keyboard instruments, voice (concert and opera), and conducting (orchestra and choir). These subjects can be chosen in the degree programs Artistic Training (10 semesters) and Music Teacher Studies (for music school teachers and freelance teachers, 8 semesters) as well as in the postgraduate courses Soloist Training (4 semesters) and part-time Soloist Training (8 semesters).
