Mobility Within the ERASMUS+ Programme
Since 1987 students from all over Europe have had the option of spending several months studying in another institution within the EU or in another partner country. This also allows teachers to share their knowledge, skills and experience in an international setting and to extend their professional networks. International Acedemy of Music and Performing Arts Vienna (AMP) supports the objectives set out by European educational agendas, which include the internationalisation of offered courses, the constant qualitative improvement of higher education, as well as the focus on employability of graduates through cooperation with non-educational institutions.
AMP received an Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) in autumn 2017 and is therefore entitled to participate in the various activities of the ERASMUS + Programme.
The recently founded AMP is an autonomous music academy for jazz and popular music, as well as for different types of applied media music, music theatre and classical music. AMP devoted exclusively to these areas of style and was founded with the aim of offering a music education that is of an high-quality and practically oriented. AMP specialises in equipping students and graduates with the necessary training, skills and know-how needed in the current professional reality. At the heart of all of this are the students who, together with their teachers, continue to advance and promote artistic developments.
The curriculum focuses on teaching and research in the advancement and appreciation of the arts, music education and music production. With the presence of international cooperations and institutionally supported artistic projects (many of which deal with creating public awareness), students are given the necessary support for a successful start on their career path. These cooperations and projects also accompany studies as part of vocational field orientation, as well as targeted preparation for the challenges of the competitive music market.
In this context, AMP benefits from the internationally successful activities of its faculty members in the art and media scenes, as well as from the renowned musical significance of its location Music City Gasometer in the uniquely striking Viennese Gasometers. In addition, opportunities in interdisciplinary collaboration arise through interaction and cooperation with local companies in the fields of music, performing arts and other creative arts. By making the Gasometers prominent centres for musical activity, Vienna is making it known on an international scale that it’s always willing to continually expand the parameters of what the city offers in musical training, and for the first time is realising a systemic cooperative between neighbouring artistic disciplines.
As part of an ever-changing and evolving music world, we are guided by the model of a communicative and interdisciplinary music education in which artistic practice, theory and research are experienced and lived as an entity. Parallel to this is AMP’s ethos: a fundamental openness and interest in everything new.
As central guiding values, a strong sense of individuality, internationality and innovation accompany the ongoing cooperation of students and teachers. This creates the necessary open environment for fostering high-quality and contemporary developments in artistic practice and related theoretical skills, as well as in the development of interpersonal skills.
We welcome individual and cultural diversity among our students and teachers and value these qualities as general foundations for originality and advancement in art, society, business and science.
We share the conviction that engaging with music as a form of art and communication and maintaining appropriate practices in teaching and research represent highly relevant potentials for our society. Partners in this process are institutions that share in our catalog of values. Before concluding a contract, preparatory visits by members of the rectorate or the international office are ideal. Recommendations from teachers can also act as a door opener for future cooperation. The aim is to diversify as far as possible in Europe, but also further beyond internationally. A long-term goal is to create ties with at least one partner institution from each of the EU member states.
Personal Mobility within the ERASMUS + Programme
Students have the option to study between 3 and 12 months or an internship lasting between 2 and 12 months. Lecturers can undertake teaching assignments spread over several days or, like all employees of AMP, continue their education.
