Almost all Diploma programs at the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst have been replaced by the Bachelor/Master system. Only the Acting program continues to admit students to the pursuit of a Diploma. The student advisory may be queried as to in which of the outgoing Diploma courses a change is still possible.
Diploma programs are divided between basic and advanced studies. The basic studies conclude with an intermediate examination (usually after the fourth semester) and the advanced studies conclude with a final examination (usually after the tenth semester.) The Diploma can also be earned in a graduate program (see “Advanced Degrees.”)
