We offer performance scholarships for entering instrumentalists and vocalists on the BMus Music degree.
Twelve scholarships are available, each worth up to £2,000 and renewable for 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. Our scholarships include two piano-accompanist scholarships of £2,000 and ten of £1,000 each, including up to 5 vocal/choral scholarships.
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 Music at City, University of London
- Be a full-time student
- Be a self funded student and not in receipt of any other scholarships.
Assessment and notification
We advise students to apply by 15th February 2021, though applications after this date will still be considered. Auditions will be conducted by members of the Department of Music. All applicants will be notified of the results before the UCAS decision deadline.
The audition will involve three pieces in contrasting styles and/or from different historical periods. Auditions typically last 15 minutes, so applicants may occasionally be 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 continue to be awarded for the duration of the BMus degree, subject to satisfactory progression and successful fulfilment of the scholar's leadership role.
