About the IB Career-related Programme at AMADEUS
All around the world, students follow the International Baccalaureate (IB) Career-related Programme to receive a personalised education with a more practical focus on specific fields.
At AMADEUS Vienna, the programme focuses specifically on music and provides the perfect pathway for students who wish to become professional musicians or aim to study music at a university level.
The two-years programme will provide the student with a Pearson BTEC International Level 3 Diploma in Music. Students follow undergraduate music studies, alongside a minimum of two core academic IB Diploma Programme subjects. Priority is given to studies in Mathematics and German as prerequisite entry requirements to Universities and music conservatories. Other subjects related to the career-related programme of study may be taken, subject to timetable and availability.
Why should AMADEUS Vienna be your first choice for top-level music education?
AMADEUS Vienna is the only school in Austria to be able to offer the IB Career-related programme, as well as the only school in Europe who offers the music pathway of the programme.
Moreover, we are the first All-Steinway high school in Austria, equipped with 21 Steinway pianos (including one model D and three baby grand pianos), and we have more than 20 dedicated private music practice rooms. Students who are successfully admitted into the programme are also accepted as members of the AMADEUS International Youth Orchestra, directed by the renowned conductor, Christoph Ehrenfellner.
