Music Scholarships

A number of Music Scholarships are available each year, to encourage talented musicians to make Warwick their first choice for music-making and for a degree. There is no music degree at Warwick and hence these Scholarships are open to students from all subjects. We currently have choral, keyboard and instrumental scholarships. Many Warwick music scholars have continued their musical education at colleges and conservatoires in the UK and abroad after obtaining a first degree in an unrelated discipline. Scholarship awards are currently £500 for each year of residence at Warwick, with an additional subsidy on music tuition fees.

To apply please fill in an application form for Bursary and Scholarships auditions.

Please note the audition dates are normally Thursday and Friday of week 3 of the autumn term.

Scholarship Auditions

The audition usually lasts around 10-15 minutes, and is designed to allow candidates to demonstrate their potential as well as present level of achievement, and in particular their likely contribution to the musical activities of the Music Centre. The auditions usually take place in the Ensemble Room, within the Music Centre in Warwick Arts Centre.

The audition consists of two parts:

  • Performance of prepared pieces
  • Interview with the panel
