The Mongolian State Conservatory in Ulan Bator (MSC) and the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich (HMTM) are to expand their partnership from the academic year 2020/2021 in a comprehensive and sustained way. Thanks to a grant from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) of a total of 88,410 Euros for the two academic years 2020/2021 and 2021/2022, we are able to substantially expand the partnership.
From the 2020/2021 academic year, each year three students from the HMTM will be able to study for the summer semester in Ulan Bator. In exchange, each academic year three students from the MSC will come to Munich for a whole academic year. As well as the students, twelve short-term lectureships each of three weeks’ duration will be financed. In both of the funding years, six lecturers from the HMTM will travel to the MSC and six from the MSC to the HMTM. As well as this, the grant includes language courses, travel by project staff, and a student tutorial. The project will be coordinated by musician and lecturer Martin Zenker, who has been responsible for the development of this collaboration from the outset.
The DAAD is supporting the university partnership from the 2020/2021 academic year with funds from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) through the “International Study and Training Partnerships (ISAP)” programme.
Interested students and teaching staff at the HMTM can now apply.
The European Commission has approved the application by the International Office of the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich (HMTM) for a grant of over 75,000 Euros for mobility projects with the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance (JAMD) (https://www.jamd.ac.il/en). The funding period begins on 1 August 2019 and extends over a period of 3 years. The main focus of this initiative will be student exchanges. The aim of the funding is to support a continuous mutual exchange between the two universities. The JAMD has been a partner university of the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich (HMTM) since 2018. Both institutions already work together intensively on various different projects.
Each semester, at least one student mobility to Israel can be supported. In return, the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich (HMTM) will host students from Israel to study in Munich. As well as this, there will also be funding opportunities for teaching and administrative staff.
Would you like to make contact with people and exchange experiences with other foreign students? At the “International Students Get-together” you will meet fellow-students who might have the same questions and problems as you. As well as that, you will meet student mentors responsible for international students who can support you and help you further.
From November the Get-together for international students will take place every wednesday at 6 pm in the cafeteria of Arcisstraße 12.
Student mentors at the HMTM have already studied for some time in Munich, and understand what is going on. They will happily share their experiences with you. Your contact is Maximiliane Norwood.
