VŠMU provides higher education with BA, MA, PhD and ArtD degree courses in full-time programmes. In 2002, the credit system of study has been established that is compatible with the requirements of the European Union (ECTS) and it offers students the opportunity to study at partner foreign universities during one or two semesters. VŠMU consists of three faculties: Music and Dance Faculty provides selected MA and doctoral programmes in English and German as well. The Theatre Faculty offers to foreign students supplementary semester courses in English. The Film and Television Faculty provides several semester courses in English, especially for foreign students coming to VŠMU within the framework of LLP/Erasmus programme or through the bilateral governmental agreements.
