However, this is not compulsory as particular importance is attached to the interview and audition where students have the opportunity to demonstrate practical skills and general music knowledge. The completion of a music theory paper, and a Music Information Profile that gives specific details of an applicant’s musical training and/or experience will be required prior to an audition.
A standard of Grade 5 or equivalent is required in music theory. For international students, an audition-recording is acceptable should you not be able to attend an audition on campus.
In addition, students must demonstrate the ability to undertake successfully an undergraduate programme of this nature. This will normally mean two A levels plus three different GCSE passes at grade C or above (one GCSE must be English), or equivalent alternatives for students under 21.
Mature students (aged 21 and over) without these qualifications will be considered individually. If you do not meet the above entry requirements, please contact the Engagement Team who will help you to identify a suitable programme of study.
