Entry Conditions for Foreign Students

All foreign students, who appeal for studies at our Academy, have to meet a one-year course at the Preparatory Department, where they study the Russian language and take a special course (instrument playing, singing, choir conducting) according to the specialization chosen. At the end of the preparatory course the students pass exams. Successful exam results are one of the requirements for entry onto the further courses. Those, who do not pass the exams successfully, are offered to complete training at the Preparatory Department once again.

The main course (undergraduate education) lasts for 5 years according to the curriculum drawn up for Belarusian students. The Belarusian State Academy of Music also offers a one-year M.A. course and a three-year Ph.D. course (degree in musicology).
