International students
Applications are accepted as of November 1, except for students who are applying via an Erasmus Mundus scholarship (in that case you must follow the EM deadlines).

For applicants who apply for the VLIR-UOS ICP scholarship, the deadline is February 1 and they apply here.

International candidates have to apply via the online application procedure of the International Admissions and Mobility office. Please read the application instructions for master’s students carefully.

The combination of close inter-cultural cooperation with fellow students and the possibility to develop a personal trajectory made the Master an extremely valuable experience for me. Moreover, CADES strongly influenced my current research into the role music industries can play in processes of human development.
