Associated Studies

The Freiburg University of Music offers associated studies in every field offered within the context of its regular degree programs - from major fields to the minor field of piano - in individual or group lessons, seminars, or ensembles. The participants are not formally enrolled in a degree program as students, but instead receive a student-like status which allows them to participate in general college life in addition to taking their lessons. For example, associated students may use the library, attend events at the school free of charge (or even be involved in them directly under certain circumstances). Associated students are also entitled to take guest and master courses at no extra cost.
