Before you join the Royal Conservatoire The Hague as an exchange student, you first need to submit your application via EASY. Upon acceptance, and before you move to The Hague, do not forget you need to still enrol and pay your study fee at your home university!

The Royal Conservatoire only considers exchange student applications submitted via the AEC online application system EASY, and including all the documents listed here below. Email applications are not accepted.

For the online EASY application, you will be required to upload the following:

  • Curriculum Vitae (CV)
  • Motivation Letter
  • Study Plan (Learning Agreement - EASY digital form)
  • Diplomas (if relevant)
  • Transcript of Records from home institution
  • Master Project Plan/Master Study Plan (Master students only).
  • Media file(s): active web link(s) to an online platform (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) where the media file(s) can be played. Composition candidates should upload scores of at least three (preferably four) of their own compositions, together with audio recordings of the works. For more detailed media requirements, check the application requirements here.

When applying for an Erasmus+ study exchange period at the Royal Conservatoire during the academic year 2023- 2024, please consider that:

  • The Royal Conservatoire encourages students to apply for an exchange preferably during Semester 1 or for a full academic year.
  • The Royal Conservatoire has 2 semesters per academic year: Semester 1 runs from September to 31st January, Semester 2 runs from 1 February to July. Check if the semesters dates of your home university and those of the Royal Conservatoire are compatible. If in doubt, check with your home university.
  • If you wish to come for only Semester 2, we cannot guarantee that we can offer all courses needed in order for you to receive 30 ECTS. Many courses have a duration of 1-year.
  • To complete your EASY application online, make sure you use the correct curriculum as published on our website. Choose courses from the relevant year and enter the course codes and ECTS on EASY. This is subject to change, as our curriculum for the coming academic year may differ slightly.
    - If accepted for the Bachelor, you will be invited to select electives at the start of the academic year.
    - If accepted in Master Year 2, you can follow the Master Year 2 courses for Artistic Development, and the Master Electives; Research and Professional Integration courses can be followed alongside the Master Year 1 students. Please note that Master specialisations are not available to Master students.
  • Your exchange application will be sent to the right department for selection.
  • You submit your application between 1 January 2023 and 1 March 2023.
  • In general, Erasmus candidates are NOT required to do a live audition. A recording is sufficient.
  • The result of your application will be communicated to you before 1 May.
  • We ask for a confirmation of acceptance from you before 1 June.
  • If you are placed on the waiting list, the final result of your application will be communicated to you before 8 June.
