A condition of admission is successful graduation from a Bachelors programme in the same field. It is also possible to continue in the Masters programme after gaining professional experience. In addition to successful completion of a Bachelors programme, a further condition is the demonstration of quality in artistic practice. The Faculty reserves the option to impose additional supplementary requirements on candidates from other schools for purposes of evaluating the candidates level in subjects where there is a difference in curriculum between the study plans of the Music and Dance Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (HAMU) and the candidates previous school. The most important criterion, however, is successful completion of the entrance examination. The entrance examination has the repertory extent of a recital. It must include at least one composition from the common world repertoire (e.g. Mozart, Strauss) which is played from memory. Additional compositions are chosen in order to demonstrate the candidates suitability for the Masters programme.
