International Students

If you are applying from outside the UK, you may be able to attend an audition at one of our international audition centres. You may also be able to receive advice about application procedures at the same time.

Please note that international applicants already studying or living in the UK at the time of application should request an audition in Birmingham.

If you are an international student travelling to the UK for auditions and submit your UCAS Conservatoires application form by the UCAS October ‘on-time’ deadline, and pay all of the associated application and audition fees, then you will be scheduled an audition during the main audition weeks in November 2017.  Please email if you are unable to attend an audition at the Birmingham Conservatoire during these weeks.
