The University of Birmingham will offer 15 Music Scholarships to new undergraduates in September 2017.
In order to be considered for a Music Scholarship, you must meet the following eligibility criteria:
- You must be classed as a “home” student (ie been normally resident in the UK for three years prior to the start of your course)
- You must have selected Birmingham as your “firm” choice following an offer of a place on a full-time undergraduate programme (other than a programme offered by the Department of Music) commencing in September 2017
- You must be performing at a Grade 8 standard in instrumental or vocal studies and supply both documentary and video evidence of your performing standard.
Each scholarship will offer approximately 17 hours of musical tuition per year for three years. Tuition will be administered by the UoB Department of Music; tuition may be delivered either by tutors employed by the UoB Department of Music, or at the Birmingham Conservatoire. This musical tuition will have a cash value of £1,000 per year, or £3,000 over the lifetime of the award.
In order to continue to receive the Music Scholarship in subsequent years, each Music Scholar must make academic progression at a 2:1 standard in their studies and commit to playing in at least one ensemble organised by the Department of Music or the University Music Society.
