Master student

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A master class student is a participant in a master course at a corresponding further education institution , such as a chamber of crafts, or an alumnus with an excellent diploma who has completed a one-year postgraduate course after graduating from an art or music college. Diploma does not necessarily mean a master's degree.

A graduate studies may at German art colleges or music schools those students begin to have completed the regular studies with above-average performance. A commission decides on admission to the master classes at the universities. Before the master class title or master class certificate is awarded, one or two more years of study must usually be spent at the art or music college.

The designation master class student is awarded at some art schools as an academic degree , at others by the respective professor as a - not legally regulated - degree. The master class program exists particularly at those art colleges that see themselves in the tradition of master classes and studying with a single professor. Other universities offer something similar, sometimes under a different name; for example, as a postgraduate course that ends with a certificate.

The postgraduate course is also often completed without an examination regulated by examination regulations. Therefore, at some art schools there are master class / postgraduate courses parallel to doctoral studies. For state scholarships to promote young artists and academics, both doctoral students and master class / postgraduate students can usually be proposed.

In a historical context, the term simply denotes the student of an old master , especially a member of a workshop .
