BIENNIO ACCADEMICO DI SECONDO LIVELLO
MASTER - SECOND CYCLE IN HIGH EDUCATION - 7th EQF LEVEL
The Biennio Accademico di Secondo Livello (Master, Second Cycle in High Education), offered by the Conservatorio Arrigo Boito since A.Y 2004/2005, is an advanced musical training course that provides students with a Second Cycle Degree.
Admission to a Second Cycle Degree Program is subject to the possession of a First Cycle Degree, or a Diploma from a Conservatory combined with a High School Diploma, or a suitable foreign university or post-secondary qualification. Master Courses have restricted access and applicants must pass an entrance exam to be admitted. Candidates who demonstrate to possess musical knowledge and skills at the level required by the chosen subject will be accepted into the program. Entrance exams requirements for individual degrees are available here.
Master Programs, like Laurea Magistrale Programs, entail the acquisition of 120 credits. Upon completion of the program, a Second Cycle Degree is awarded which is the equivalent to a Laurea Magistrale title in terms of pursuing professional careers in the public sector, and which gives access to further academic studies such as Master di II Livello (Second Level Postgraduate Specialization) and Ph.D.
The Graduate Degree Program allows students to partake in external internships as well as in the international student exchange program ERASMUS, while providing access to State sponsored scholarships and grants for students in need of financial aid.
