Auditions

If performance will be part of your studies you will need to pass an audition as part of the application process.

Audition process

There are three parts to your audition. The first is to provide relevant background about your audition request by completing the online form. Next, you will submit your audition recording and other documents by Friday 29 May for Trimester 2, 2020 study, or Friday 31 July for Trimester 1, 2021 study. Finally, applicants assessed as suitable applicants will attend an interview, by video conference. Late applications are accepted subject to availability of places.

All auditions are to be submitted as a recording. See the recorded audition guidelines. Music Therapy applicants have additional Music Therapy audition guidelines.
