About this course

Course no longer open for Admission.

The Diploma of Music comprises one-year full time study. The award is designed for students who are interested in pursuing greater understanding and knowledge of the discipline of music. Its structure allows students to improve skills in either one or more broad areas of interest: ensemble skills, music history, music literacy skills, audio design and music technology.

The award permits a year of dedicated pre-Bachelor of Music study, for students wishing to improve their performance/composition and musical literacy skills for entry into the BMus.

Entry requirements

Applicants are expected to meet at least one of the General Entrance Requirements of the University

If you are an international student you will need to meet the International General Entrance Requirements for Undergraduate Programs.

Special Requirements for Ensemble enrolment:

Applicants wishing to undertake ensemble units (FCE units) are required to undertake an audition and interview - students prepare approximately 5 minutes of music (excerpts) for the ensemble audition. Applicants should advise the Conservatorium office the ensemble for which they wish to audition. The audition will be scheduled, usually in the first week of semester and the student will be informed at that time whether enrolment in the unit will be approved. Ensembles are dependent on a balanced group, for some ensembles if the instrument quota is already full with returning student applicants will be informed that ensemble is not auditioning. Auditions for new students usually occur every semester.

Students wishing to undertake a Music Technology major: submit a folio of at least three recent compositions and then attend an interview. Applicants are encouraged, strongly, to include recent CD recordings of the works submitted in the folio. Students also undertake a written placement examination, scheduled at the time of the interview. Through interview, the audition panel will assess the applicant's musical background and career aspirations. Members of the staff from the Conservatorium will comprise the interview panel.

BMus Preparation: audition required

Performance students: prepare fifteen minutes of music to show the applicant's skill and musical tastes. Students also undertake a written placement examination, scheduled at the time of the audition.

Composition students: submit a folio of at least three recent compositions. Applicants are encouraged, strongly, to include recent CD recordings of the works submitted in the folio. Students also undertake a written placement examination, scheduled at the time of the
audition.

Through interview, the audition panel will assess the applicant's musical background and career aspirations. Members of the staff from the Conservatorium will comprise the audition and interview panel.

After the audition/interview process and the entrance exam has been completed, a report is written by the Chair of the audition panel. The Head of School (or designate) and the course coordinator then review the audition report to determine each candidate's suitability for the course.
