Video and digital interviews replace ordinary auditions for studies in performing music

No physical auditons will be held on campus this year. All applicants will, as with the primary admissions, be assessed on the basis of submitted video material. If you pass round 1, you will receive an invitation to round 2 in week 21/22. Both rounds must be passed to be considered for admission. Round 2 consists of a digital interview with the Assessment Commission, as well as an administrative employee.

Round 2 will be held on June 3. The interviews will last about 15-20 minutes for applicants to classical, church and jazz music, and 30 minutes for applicants to conducting. The exact time of the interview will be given by e-mail with an invitation to round 2.

Theory and Aural test for applicants for Bachelor in Performing Music

Applicants for a bachelor's degree in performing music, for either jazz, classical, church music or conducting, that passes round 1, must complete a digital theory and hearing test before round 2. The test will take place on Thursday 2 June during the period 14:00 - 16:30. The test will be carried out from your home on your own machine (not tablet or phone). More information about login etc. will be sent to approved applicants well in advance of the test.

The test is also arranged for applicants who after primary admission have been offered a place to study, subject to the fact that a new theory and aural exam has been passed by 1 July. Relevant applicants are contacted by the faculty's admissions office.Instrument vacancies
