Repetiteurs 

All répétiteur candidates apply for the Professional Diploma (Repetiteur), UCAS Conservatoires course code: 909F. There is no Academy application fee, though you must pay the UCAS £25 registration charge when you submit the application.
These requirements cover assessment for the Prof Dip and also (for candidates who are eligible) the Répétiteur Fellowship.

You should prepare two ensemble scenes, with at least three main characters, from two operas and be able to play them and sing in the vocal lines as far as possible. Half an hour before the audition you will be given some spoken language extracts in German, French, English and Italian to prepare for the audition. There will also be some sight-reading tests, and you may be asked to have an academic interview later in the day.

There are specific requirements for written work to support your application.
