Birmingham Music Scholarship 2014

Music Scholarship


Birmingham’s musical heritage reaches back to our first Professor of Music, Edward Elgar. Today, both the new Bramall Music Building and the Barber Institute host regular public performances from our two orchestras, choirs, bands and other music ensembles. In recognition of this legacy, the University of Birmingham will be offering 36 new Music Scholarships to new undergraduates in September 2013.

Am I eligible to apply?

In order to be considered for a scholarship, applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • You must be a UK or EU student liable for the full standard undergraduate fee (£9,000).
  • You must have an offer of a place on a full-time undergraduate programme (other than a programme offered by the Department of Music) at the University of Birmingham, starting in September 2013.
  • You must have achieved grade 8 in instrumental or vocal studies.

What does the scholarship offer?

Each  scholarship  will offer a £1,000 cash award which will be tenable for three years, subject to satisfactory academic progression at a 2:1 standard.

How can I apply?

This scheme is now closed for the 2013/14 academic year. Applications will reopen for 2014/15 in October.

Selection of these awards will be based on the standard of grade 8 qualification and academic potential. All applicants will be notified of the outcome of following confirmation of A Levels results in August. Successful applicants are encouraged to perform in at least one ensemble and/or chamber ensemble organised by the University Music Society and Department of Music.
