The Conservatoire schools welcome all applications and judge prospective students solely on their talent and potential to develop the skills required for their chosen profession.
Applications to any of the Conservatoire schools should be made directly to the individual school. It is not possible to apply to any of the schools through the UCAS system.
Most of the Conservatoire schools have a nominal non-refundable application fee, which covers the cost of processing the application, and require photographs to accompany the application form.Closing dates for application vary. You usually need to be prepared to apply a year before you wish to start your course.
