Candidates are recruited on the basis of their musical abilities and potential and we welcome enquires and applications from students with disabilities.

Whether you have learning difficulties, mobility problems or a long-term health condition, we want you to feel that you have the support you need to audition at the Academy.

How to tell us about a disability

When filling out your UCAS Conservatoires application, please let us know of any disabilities by using the drop-down menu on the form.

After your application has been processed, the Academy Registry will contact you before the audition to find out how we can assist you.

If you have any questions in the meantime, please feel free to get in touch by email or call +44 (0)20 7873 7393.
