Higher Studies in music

Music and Arts University of City of Vienna

The Music and Arts University of the City of Vienna (MUK) is a city-based art university which creates cultural values for the future through its tireless research in the fields of music, dance and drama.
Today’s MUK dates back to the efforts begun during the 1920s by private stakeholders and the public administration of the City of Vienna to provide access to the highest standards of education in the arts and music to a wide range of people on an artistic as well as an educational level. Since the university’s accreditation in 2005 (still known back then as the Konservatorium Wien Privatuniversität), the City of Vienna – as thesole owner of the GmbH institution – has made it possible for 850 students from all over the world to access artistic education that is contemporary, highly demanding on an international level, yet financially viable and in accordance with the principles of the Bologna Declaration of the European Union.
