The Royal Academy of Music in the UK invites applications for six ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) scholarships in the 2021/2022 academic session.
Each year the Royal Academy of Music awards six ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) scholarships, on the basis of merit, to candidates who attend their audition sessions in the autumn. There are two awards for international-fee students, two for UK home-fee students and two for EU home-fee students: one each for undergraduate and postgraduate study.
Worth of Award
- The international scholarships cover full tuition fees and a generous maintenance award of £5,000 for the duration of both undergraduate and postgraduate study.
- The UK/EU (home fee) postgraduate scholarships cover full tuition fees. UK/EU undergraduate scholarships are for £6,000 (which can be put towards fees or living expenses) for the duration of the undergraduate programme of study. UK/EU students do not receive extra scholarship assistance for maintenance.
- After auditioning, you will be offered a place, either with or without a scholarship.
- All international students and UK/EU postgraduates are also invited to apply for financial assistance.
- You should then accept your place and submit your financial assistance application online by 31 January.
- The Bursary Committee meets at the end of February and will notify applicants if they’ve been awarded a bursary in early March.
- If financial assistance is not awarded through the bursary process, you can apply for hardship funds after enrolment is completed.
How to Apply
- No separate application process to the ABRSM is necessary.
- Candidates are considered automatically by the Royal Academy of Music’s Selection Board following the auditions, and recommendations are then made directly to the ABRSM.
