Easing the transition to higher education

The Precollege course is run by the music schools of the Musik-Akademie Basel, together with the Academy of Music and the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. It is designed to prepare aspiring students for entry to a degree programme in Classical Music, Early Music or Jazz.

Aptitude test

Applicants must demonstrate a strong and clear desire to study music at university level, as well as outstanding music talent, instrumental/vocal proficiency, and a passion for music in general. In addition to an instrumental/vocal major, Precollege students who display the required ability may choose also to major in music theory/composition, school music, choral conducting or audio design.

The aptitude tests are held every spring.
