To Studielink

Note: you will now leave the website of the Royal Conservatoire. You are not done with the admission process after registering with Studielink. Please read the further instructions below first.

Start by collecting all the documents you will need for your entrance exam and your course.

  1. portfolio (see below)
  2. CV
  3. study plan (see below)

Selection for the Master specialisation Sonology Instruments & Interfaces is based on a portfolio with compositions, recordings of live performances, or the results of research in the form of computer programs, articles, theses, etc. 

You must have a Bachelor’s degree, preferably in a discipline related to Sonology, with a grade of good or very good. You must also submit a two-page study plan containing the following elements:

  1. A brief description of the project you plan to carry out during the Master’s course. The project can consist of a practical and a theoretical part or can be purely theoretical.
  2. A timetable covering four semesters, which also includes a proposal for some courses you might follow in the one-year Sonology course.
  3. A detailed description of the proposed project. This description should present the central research question, the context in which the research will take place and the form in which the research results will be presented (e.g., compositions, computer programs or articles).
  4. An overview of the subjects to be discussed in the thesis for the final exam.

Because the Master specialisation Sonology Instruments & Interfaces is a research Master, it is not necessary to submit a separate Master study plan.

There is no live entrance exam.

The decision on whether you will be allowed to enter the course is based on the information and the answers you have entered and the documents and sound and visual recordings you have uploaded. The Student Administration Office will inform you  of whether you have been admitted by e-mail before 1 April 2019.

Only if you have been ‘Admitted’ are you certain of being able to commence your studies at the Royal Conservatoire in September of the following academic year.

If you are admitted, you must ensure that all the necessary documents are submitted.
The deadline to submit the proof of your English language proficiency (see step English proficiency) is 1 September.

When you are admitted you will receive information via e-mail and Studielink about payment of tuition fees.

Only when you have fulfilled all registration requirements will you be enrolled as a student. So make sure that you have submitted all requested documents before 1 September 2021.

More information on the fees and payment.

We wish you a lot of success with your application.
