There will be digital interviews in week 10
Initially, all applicants to music of performing arts studies were set to take two rounds of auditions in the spring of 2022, but due to the corona pandemic, it was decided that the admission instead must be conducted digitally, with the exception of the conducting courses.
The first round was previously announced, with video submissions by January 15. Round 2 will be digital interviews held in week 10 for applicants who qualify after submitted video in round 1.
Respond for video assessment round 1
Anyone who has submitted video as round 1 within the stated deadline will receive a response to the video assessment at the end of January. The email you receive will notify which study you have been assessed for and whether you have been found qualified or not after the committee has reviewed the submitted video material. If you have applied for several studies, you will receive an answer for each of the applications in the same e-mail.
For applicants for a Bachelor's programme in music of performing arts, a new supplementary video must be submitted if one has been found qualified after round 1. The supplementary video must be shared with the faculty no later than March 1. The video should contain the rest of the pieces you did not record on video during the first round. What repertoire remains can be found in the study program article of Bachelor classic and for The One-Year Programme Classic. You'll get information by email on how to share the video together with the response for round 1.
Invitation to round 2 - digital interviews
If you are found eligible after the first round, you will receive an email inviting you to round 2 and the digital interviews approx. 10 February. The interviews will take place via Zoom. In the email you will find a link to the Zoom interview and information about what day and time the interview will take place. By confirming participation in the interview, you agree that the interview will take place digitally with audio and webcam turned on.
It is important that you familiarize yourself with ZOOM, and well in advance before the interview takes place. Make sure that your PC, webcam, and any headphones are working, and that you have a good stable network where you are. Be ready at scheduled time and be prepared for any delays.
