    Documents can also be added later.

No, the application process at HfMT Cologne runs exclusively online via the muvac platform. Applications submitted by mail cannot be considered.

muvac is originally a platform for job offers in the field of music, hence the term vacancy (= free job to be filled). In the application process, each degree program to which you can apply at HfMT Cologne corresponds to its own vacancy.

All degree programs offered must be assigned to a so-called "expertise" in muvac. An expertise is a specific instrument. This allows all relevant offers for a specific instrument to be displayed in a filtered manner on the muvac website under the menu item "Vacancies".
When you create a profile in muvac, you must select an expertise. You can then only apply to degree programs that require this expertise.
Example: You would like to apply for the Bachelor of music Violin. Then you select the expertise "Violin". If you then also want to apply for the Bachelor of music Percussion at the same time, you must first change the expertise to "Percussion" in your muvac profile.
