3. Application (please, only via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org)
3.1 Deadline: 30th of April (no matter it be for the first/second semester or for the whole academic year).
Please, send the following with your application e-mail:
- Student's application form with photo.
- Learning agreement in draft.
- Curriculum vitae.
- Performers and conductors: link(s) to a recording of two works of different styles, or files attached to the
application e-mail (video, if possible).
Composers: two original scores (pdf format).
For Musicology and Music Education: an original paper in Spanish (pdf format), on a topic chosen by
the applicant (2500 words, approx.).
4. Study plan
At present, the CS Massotti offers first cycle studies (Bachelor) only. The studies last four years, with 60 credits (ECTS) each.
The study plan is organized in five main fields: Composition, Conducting (Choir or Orchestra), Music Education, Musicology and Performing (instruments and Singing).
See the charts of subjects for each of the main fields.
Incoming students are expected to have a proper level of Spanish, specially if they have to attend theoretical subjects. Most of professors can speak English, and there is no problem to use this language in performing classes (individual lessons, chamber music, choir,...), but this option is quite unlikely in theoretical group classes.
6. Academic calendar
The CS Massotti academic year comprises 36 weeks, and is divided into two terms of 18 weeks each (Christmas and Easter holidays -2 weeks each- are not counted here).
The first term runs from the third or fourth week of September to the first half of February. The second one covers from the second half of February to June 30. A preview of the academic calendar is published here by the end of June.
Incoming students are expected to have a proper insurance covering common illness and accidents while living in Spain. See here information on the European Health Insurance Card, and ask your country's Health Authority.
A third party liability insurance and an insurance covering repatriation expenses are also recommended.
The CS Massotti will guide incoming students in finding accommodation.

10.1 Students who are citizens of a EU country, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway or Switzeland.
- To enter Spain, you need either a passport or an identity card stating your nationality (both documents
must be valid and in force).
- You need not a residence permit. Nevertheless, if you are going to stay in Spain more than 90 days,
you must personally request your registration in the Central Registry of Foreigners.
The request must be submitted to the Office for Foreigners in Murcia (see location here), within three
months from the date of your entry into Spain.
- Applying for registration is easy. You will need:
* Your passport or identity card (both valid and in force), with a copy. If the document is expired, a copy
of it and the request for renewal must be provided.
* Accreditation of your status as an "Erasmus student" (ask the CS Massotti Erasmus Coordinator).
* Application form EX-18 (when filled, print two copies). [Document in Spanish]
* To pay a fee (15.60 € as of February 2018). Find the payment document here. [Document in Spanish]
Ask the CS Massotti Erasmus Coordinator for assitance if
you need some help to fill out the documents in Spanish.
The Office for Foreigners will immediately provide you with a certificate of registration bearing your
name, nacionality, address in Murcia, a foreigner identification number (NIE), and the date of registration.
10.2 Students who are NOT citizens of a EU country, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway or Switzerland.
We are preparing a summary of relevant information. In the meanwhile, please refer to
a Spanish consulate or check the website on immigration of the Government of Spain [in Spanish].
Sorry for the inconvenience.
