The Istituto musicale pareggiato della Valle d’Aosta awarded the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) under the Erasmus+ programme in 2018.

Its ERASMUS+ institution code is I AOSTA03.

General conditions

Exchanges between conservatoires are normally a reciprocal arrangement. Your exchange placement must form part of your degree studies at your home institution, and the application must be approved by your Erasmus+ coordinator. We regret we are unable to accept individual direct applications. Placements require an Erasmus+ Inter-Institutional Agreement.

Courses and discipline sectors

The Conservatoire offers Undergraduate and Postgraduate programmes in classical music.

You can find out all our discipline sectors and courses here

The exchange period lasts between 3 and 12 months.

If you are currently attending your final year of bachelor’s studies and if you are going to enroll in a Master degree, the institution providing the Master course must confirm that you hold the place, since the placement must be part of your degree studies at your home institution.


Language Requirements

Students are required to have at least the B1 level in Italian, English or French.
