Artist Diploma

The Artist Diploma of the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel is an
advanced (“graduate level”) non-degree program. It provides focused studies for
young artists in the pre-professional stages of their careers. Qualification to
enter this program is predicated exclusively on the level and quality of
performance and/or achievement, rather than the attainment of specific academic
credentials. Nevertheless, most entrants will have completed their formal music
education at a music conservatory or an equivalent institute of higher music
studies. The Artist Diploma is a program that varies in length from two to three

Young artists must be invited to continue their studies into the second

to continue his/her program for an additional year, after having obtained the
Artist Diploma.
