How will auditions be taking place?

Applicants to certain courses at Leeds Conservatoire will need to audition, interview or submit a portfolio of work.

Due to current social distancing guidelines, we are asking all applicants to submit audition, interview and portfolio materials online this year, rather than attend in-person events.
