Video pre-screening is in operation for our overseas audition centre in China. Please submit a pre-screening audition video following our standard audition requirements to firstname.lastname@example.org by the 11 October 2020 in order to be considered for the audition centre in China. We advise that you submit an audition video via a video sharing platform such as YouTube, Vimeo or YouKu.

For entry in September 2021, virtual auditions are in operation for international applicants outside of China, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
Please send us your audition video by 11 October 2020 in order to be considered during our main audition period in November and December. Audition recordings and portfolios sent to us after this date will still be considered but audition videos may not be processed until early 2021. We advise that you submit an audition video via a video sharing platform such as YouTube, Vimeo or YouKu.
As part of your virtual audition you may be invited to attend a virtual interview where you may be asked to perform technical assessments such as sight reading and scales. The virtual interview will also give you a chance to meet our staff and ask questions about life as an international student at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.
We know that attending a virtual audition will be a new experience for many of our applicants so we have prepared detailed guidance and advice on our Audition Advice page to help you prepare for your virtual audition and interview.
You will automatically be considered for a scholarship based on your virtual audition.
