We are the leading educational institution for music and drama in Carinthia, Austria. Comparable to an university we offer studies for the careers as a professional musician or actor. Konse also offers courses as an adjunct to further qualifications. 
Our Diplomas are based on and are the equivalent of those taken at universities in Austria, and are thus equally recognised legally. 
Since 2007 KONSE also maintains a study co-operation with the Alpa Adria University of Klagenfurt.

The conservatory is located near the beautiful Wörthersee, where famous composers such as Gustav Mahler, Johannes Brahms, Alban Berg, Hugo Wolf and Anton von Webern wrote some of their masterpieces. 
KONSE is proud of its cooperation with renowned cultural and educational institutions in Carinthia (eg the Alpa Adria University Klagenfurt, Carinthian Opera Klagenfurt). 
The Conservatorium professors are 75 artists and educators with national and international reputations. Each year, around 900 national and international students study at the Conservatorium. 
KONSE is especially proud of the fact that many of its students are from its neighbouring countries Slovenia, Italy, Croatia and Germany.  

Drama and elementary music education (EMP) are also developed to the highest professional levels. 
Each study (classical, jazz, folk and EMP) also offer artistic study projects such as orchestra, big band, opera, choral, early music and recording studio productions. 
In addition, professional qualifications in courses and seminars can be acquired. 
Talented children aged four or five are involved in the elementary music program with singing, movement and playing.  

Therefore our Institute has striven to obtain the best possible national and international artists and pedagogues as our Professorial staff. Our studies contain a high percentage of stage performance and lead directly to performing arts with sufficient pedagogic studies to obtain teaching positions nationally and internationally:

Instrumental and vocal pedagogy (IGP) 
KONSE offers an instrumental or vocal pedagogic Diploma which offers the flexibility to tailor courses to the educational requirements in schools, at the present moment this flexibility is not present at the Universities. Our students have seen the benefits of our Diploma and Educational Institutions value it highly. 

Our way: aware of the changes 
We are of course aware that many, for whatever reason, are not able to establish themselves as a professional performing artist, or have decided to pursue another direction in the arts industry. The requisites have changed dramatically over the past twenty years and we have responded accordingly. 
And yet there are even more possibilities 
Nevertheless, KONSE is a state accredited tertiary Institution whose qualifications are recognized throughout Europe. All tertiary conservatorium studies are recognised as those from Music Universities by the State (paragraph 78 University laws 2002). 
Tertiary students at both Institutions are supported by the State. It is therefore possible for students to change between Institutions without problems. Since 2008 the possibility also exists to complete a musicology thesis at Konse thus allowing the acceptance to a Bachelor Degree (paragraph 78 University law 2002, acceptance of examinations). 

KONSE can be proud of our many successes that extend far beyond our borders. These successes are due in part to our selection and early training of gifted young musicians (aged between 5 and 16) and teamwork with the Carinthian Music school system. 
We are actively engaged helping students obtain what is necessary for further studies at other institutions (supplements, thesis etc) and occupational assistance where possible. 
We hold in high esteem our colleagues from other Institutes nationally and internationally (we know how much work and effort goes into every Artist). This as we all know often goes without mention, but goes undoubtedly into the cultural backbone of an Artist. 

In any case - Welcome! 
We hope these explanations may help in the decision to choose which direction of musical study to follow, and to shed light on the philosophy of our Institution. The most important factor in our Institution is the student.
