Yes I’m applying for music at the unis! I decided to apply for both conservatoires and unis because it just opens up my options and gives me more choice depending on where I get offers! Have you applied to a conservatoire/uni?😁

Oh yeah that’s a great idea! I’ve only applied to unis for music because as much as I love performance - I really want to focus on other areas of music as well like musicology and history. I’ve applied to Durham, King’s, Edinburgh, Oxford and Bristol! Perhaps you should check out our 2020 Oxford music applicants thread!!! There are so few of us it’s just a good way to come together and chat about things!

Hi guys! Does anybody know roughly how long it takes for RCS to send out the acceptances/rejections? Auditions were last week plus this Monday (the 11th) and I was just wondering when I can expect an answer
