    I sent off my application at the end of November, and it was acknowledged but I haven't heard anything else since. I got an email from Birmingham today about music scholarships, which is something I would definately want to apply for if I was to get an offer, but does getting this email mean that they are actually going to offer me a place? Or is it just a general email they send to all applicants with Grade 8 in an instrument?

    Also any more general information people could give me about music scholarships would be great

    You can apply for it if you accept Birmingham as a firm or insurance (well, that was the case when i applied a few years ago). I applied with Birmingham as my insurance with a pretty strong musical background (3 grade 8s, 2 merit and one distinction as well as about 20 hrs of ensemble work a week and county orchestra 1st clarinet) and got refused point blank. Not even an invite to audition. Still, you may as well apply for it. I imagine that they'd just send you that information as a sort of mailshot thing rather than sorting out the people who were going to get offers.

    The application form itself involved writing a musical based personal statement and filling out other tedious crap like your personal information and grades etc.. Not too hard really - a bit like a diluted ucas application.

    Best of luck.
