About the studies

The study module in musical theatre consists of master-level advanced studies organised by the University as joint instruction. We offer the student the basic skills to work as a performer in musical theatre, a field that requires mastery of several different skillsets.

The teaching method in the studies is group instruction. Students improve their skills in workshops and master classes that include dance, musical singing, voice control, ensemble singing and acting. As a student you will get to work in close collaboration with professionals of different artistic fields.

The study module comprises courses from Theatre Academy’s and Sibelius Academy’s selection. The studies constitute 10-30 credits.


The coordinating teacher in the study module is Hanna Hurskainen. Other teachers in the module are part of the University’s lecturer staff as well as visiting experts.


Students to the musical theatre study module are selected based on auditions. Auditions are organised in February or March for studies that begin in autumn of the same year. Students that are not enrolled in Uniarts Helsinki can also apply, as part of the admissions quota is reserved for open university students. Auditions will not be organised in spring 2023.
