Applying to the Conservatorium – tips & tricks
Thinking of applying to the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University? Applying to university can be a confusing and daunting process, so we’ve asked current students of the Conservatorium to share their top tips to help you with the process.
Just do it!
The Conservatorium is a place of learning and the panel are looking for students who bring in a diverse range of qualities to the Conservatorium. Just take the leap and apply.
Make sure to read all the text associated relating to applications and auditions. This includes audition material you must prepare, accompanist requirements, portfolio requirements, video auditions, cost, etc. Visit the Conservatorium’s audition requirements page for information on auditions, quick study pieces and key dates.
Make sure you’re available for audition week! Try to not schedule things during that time (and move things around if you can). You will want every part of you to focus on the audition and not be distracted.
Do your research
If you missed out on Open Day, look up some of the academic staff of the area you are interested in and try to make an appointment. If you have any specific questions, then be sure to ask at an admissions representative. Domestic students have the opportunity to book in a Q&A session with a Griffith representative.
Explore the Conservatorium
The Queensland Conservatorium hosts over 300 concerts a year and the best way to get a feel for student life and the performance opportunities is to attend one of the many concerts. From symphony orchestra, opera, musical theatre and everything in between there will be an event for you. This is also a great way to meet current students and staff and ask questions.
