Scholarships for prospective students

You don't need to wait until you've started your course to apply for an NTU music scholarship.

You can apply for one of our music scholarships if you have received or firmly accepted an offer to join an NTU undergraduate or postgraduate degree course starting in September 2021 or January 2022.

All scholarships provide free, extra-curricular music tuition from an NTU Music tutor, during your studies.

NTU Music Scholarship

Our NTU Music Scholarship is designed to support proficient musicians in the continuing development of their music practice.

This scholarship is not for a set duration, and we may award free music tuition for a number of months, a full academic year, or up to the duration of your course.

All tuition is offered from our purpose-built Music Centre in University Hall, on the City Campus.

Who can apply?

As well as having an offer to study on an eligible course, you also must be a Grade 6 or 7 standard vocalist; or a Grade 7 or 8 instrumentalist.

You don't need to have taken and passed exams, but your audition performance should demonstrate that you are singing or playing to this level.

How do I apply?

Due to COVID-19, our application and audition process is currently online.

  1. Video yourself singing or playing two contrasting pieces of music (a maximum of ten minutes combined) and upload these to a video sharing platform like Vimeo or YouTube. You'll need the web addresses handy for your application form.
  2. Complete our Music Scholarship Application Form for offer holders and submit it by the deadline.

The deadline to apply is 11.59 pm on Thursday 10 June 2021.

All applicants will be notified by Friday 18 June 2021, to let them know whether or not they have been shortlisted for a scholarship.

If you are shortlisted, we'll invite you to attend a short online interview with the Director of Music.

All shortlisted students will find out whether or not they have been successful by Friday 25 June 2021.
