Admission Procedure

Degree programs at Jazzcampus

 

Due to the worldwide state of emergency and the measures taken by the Swiss federal authorities to contain the corona pandemic, all of our entrance exams for this year will only take place online and with video material to be submitted in advance.

The announced dates remain valid (see below), but take place online. Detailed information and instructions on the adapted procedure as well as the individual times for the online exams will be sent to the candidates shortly by email.

If you have any questions regarding this procedure, please contact us at the following e-mail address: jazz.notexisting@nodomain.comhsm@fhnw.notexisting@nodomain.comch

Theory part for Bachelor applicants: 
The announced dates do not take place. We are currently working on a web-based application. This online test is expected to be available at the end of April. Basically, the same requirements still apply to the preparation for the theoretical part (see section "Sample exams").

To prepare for the online exam, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with the free zoom software (zoom client or zoom mobile app).
