Auditions for the music scholarship take place shortly after the entrance examination and potential music scholars are expected to satisfy our usual academic requirements for entry. Candidates should normally have reached Grade 4 – 5 standard on their orchestral instrument and their playing should be of distinction quality.  It is expected that candidates should normally offer a second instrument. Awards can be worth up to 5% of fees.
