How will auditions be taking place?

Classical and Jazz (incl 'Classical/Jazz with...')

Due to current social distancing guidelines, we are asking all of our applicants to submit their audition materials online this year, rather than attend an audition in-person.

The below guides will set out what you will need to submit when applying to one of our Classical or Jazz courses at Leeds Conservatoire.

All Other Courses

We are currently working on our audition, interview and portfolio guides for all of our other courses.

In the meantime, you can look at our 2020 entry guides to give you an idea of what we might ask you to do.
