Aptitude testing

In addition to academic requirements, applicants must have graded music examinations as follows:

  • ABRSM grade 8 in your main instrument
    and minimum ABRSM grade 5 in piano (we will accept other keyboard instruments such as organ or harpsichord in lieu of Piano).
  • If an applicant’s main instrument is Piano (or equivalent) then we will accept this at ABRSM grade 8 with no further graded exams required.

If ABRSM exams are not being taken then we will consider equivalent qualifications. For example:

  • Trinity College London Music Grade Exams
  • London College of Music graded exams
  • Similar graded music examinations from other countries

Graded exams are strongly preferred but if they have not been taken, we will consider a reference from the applicant’s Music Tutor commenting on their level of performance with reference to the ABRSM framework . This information must be included in the original UCAS application, or submitted promptly via myApplication once the applicant has applied.
