Auditions and Interviews

Audition/Interview Arrangements

When you apply to Guildhall School and meet our entry criteria, you will be offered an audition, interview or portfolio/application assessment designed to assess attainment and potential.

Please find a brief overview of these below. For details of the audition and interview arrangements for each programme, please follow the links.

Special Arrangements for Applicants with Declared Disabilities

We will consider all reasonable adjustments to enable you to achieve the very best from your audition or interview. You will be asked to provide details of any adjustments you may require on your application form, but you can also contact us directly using the contact details below.

For students who have a physical disability which will affect access arrangements, we will ensure auditions are held in a room with step-free access.

It is not necessary to request extra time as our auditions and interviews are not normally time-limited. However, if you are required to take sight reading or a test, and declare a visual impairment and/or dysgraphia/dyslexia or other specific learning difficulties, you will be entitled to extra time.

Please note, only BMus applicants in the following departments can expect to have a sight reading or a test at audition:

  • Composition
  • Vocal
  • Wind, Brass & Percussion

If you have any queries or issues please contact us directly:
