Performance scholarships

Performance scholarshipsWe have seven scholarships, worth £2,000 and renewable each year of study subject to satisfactory academic progress.

We are welcoming interest in the scholarships from instrumentalists and vocalists, and will be offered, typically, to advanced performers beyond Grade-8 level. We envisage that at least one of the scholarships will be offered to a piano accompanist.

Eligibility criteria

We will award scholarships based on an audition and a short statement of interest. In order to be eligible for the scholarship, applicants must:

  • be in receipt of an offer to study BMus and have City, University of London as their firm choice.
  • be a full-time student
  • be a self funded student and not in receipt of any other scholarships

Assessment and notification

We advise students apply by the 31st January 2018, though applications after this date will be still be considered. After this date we will contact offer holders who have expressed an interest in the scholarship and invite them to select a preference of audition date and to write a short statement of interest. The auditions will be conducted by the Department of Music and the School's scholarship group. All applicants will be notified of the results before the UCAS decision deadline (5th May 2018).

The audition will involve three pieces in contrasting styles and/or from different historical periods. Auditions typically last 15 minutes, so applicants may be occasionally stopped during a piece. The piano accompanist audition will also involve a sight-reading component.

We expect scholars to be leaders in their respective fields throughout their BMus studies, and actively contribute to, and enhance, the musical life of the department and the University. The scholarship will therefore continue to be awarded for the duration of the BMus degree, subject to satisfactory progression (2.1 average), and successful fulfilment of the scholar's leadership role.
