The School offers a number of scholarships for students who have reached grade 8 (or equivalent) in instrument, dance or voice, so that they may continue their musical studies throughout their degree programmes.
There is no formal application. Details of your musical/dance activities should be provided in the personal statement on your UCAS application form.
All students who are at the required level and firm with us automatically receive this scholarship, which at present is in the form of 10 lessons, worth approximately £600 per year, with a tutor from either the Birmingham Conservatoire or the Birmingham School of Music.
Birmingham's musical heritage reaches back to our first Professor of Music, Edward Elgar. Today, both the new Bramall Music Building and the Barber Institute host regular public performances from our two orchestras, choirs, bands and other music ensembles. In recognition of this legacy, the University of Birmingham will be offering new Music Scholarships to new undergraduates. Learn more about our music scholarships here.
Please contact the Admissions Tutor for more details.
