Music Scholarships are available to both singers and instrumentalists, and are designed to enable talented musicians to continue to develop their skill and musicianship in a supportive environment. These scholarships are open to all enrolled undergraduates (whether new or returning students), and are tenable for the duration of the scholar's undergraduate degree.
Three kinds of music scholarships are available:
- University Instrumental Scholarships
- University Choral Scholarships
- Joint Choral Scholarships, held in conjunction with St Mary’s Church
The scholarships have a nominal value of £1000 per year, comprising:
- Regular individual lessons in the scholar’s instrument or voice
- A bursary of £300 per year, to support purchase of sheet music, exam fees, etc.
Scholars are expected to play a full part in the musical life of the University by committing to one or more University ensembles or choirs, and to play or sing in the annual Chancellor’s Concert.
The application requirements given here are guidelines, and are flexible – if you are uncertain about your eligibility for a scholarship, please speak to the Director of Music.
