Studying Music in Dresden

Diverse, Individual, Practical

The Dresden College of Music views itself as a place for the cultivation of the music culture in which art, science and instruction in theory and practice are interconnected. There is a lively exchange between tradition and renovation, continuity and experiment. Freedom to experiment, new working methods and artistic research are components of everyday life at the College.

University Operations from 4 January 2021

In order to implement the current CoronaSchutzVerordnung (Corona Protection Ordinance) and the associated further procedure, the university management, together with the Senate, has decided on a series of new regulations starting on January 4, 2021, which (for the time being) will apply until the end of the semester.

The university will only be open for practice from January 4, 2021. The presence operation is suspended. Exempted from this regulation are final exams that include the artistic presentation of the last focus module. Continue reading

Important Update on Travel Requirements

Trainees, students, postgraduates and research assistants are again allowed to enter Germany from other countries outside of the EU!

Because institutions of higher education are organising the 2020/21 winter semester as a combination of online and in-person instruction, it is not necessary to provide any separate documentation of the need to attend in person. The letter of admission or the employment agreement is sufficient for the visa to be issued.

Regardless of the criteria stated above, all travellers must follow the quarantine rules of the relevant federal state of Germany.
