Prospective music students who would like to study at the School of Music & Conservatory, North-West University in Potchefstroom next year can now apply for admission and an audition.

The process to be admitted to undergraduate music study at North-West University consists of two successive parts, with a separate application for each of these parts.

FIRST — a prospective student must apply for general admission to the North-West University.

THEN — a prospective student must apply for an audition and other selection procedures at the NWU School of Music.

The selection process will only start once both these applications have been completed.
