Late applications follow the same process as on-time applications. You’ll need to apply via UCAS Conservatoires in the first instance and follow the two-stage audition process with online and in-person options. Please click here to learn more.
If you are an undergraduate applicant, you’ll also be invited to complete an online music theory test after submitting your UCAS Conservatoires application.
As the deadline for submitting an on-time application has passed, if you are interested in applying for September 2023 entry, we’d encourage you to submit an official application via UCAS Conservatoire as soon as possible and follow our audition process.
For international applicants, we’d recommend applying no later than May to ensure sufficient time for visa application and travel if you obtain an offer.
Support and Activities for late applicants
Chat with our Admissions Team
Every Tuesday and Friday during term time, our Admissions Team host informal one-to-one sessions to give late applicants the chance to ask any questions about studying at the RNCM. They’ll cover everything from applications and audition to fees and finance, living in Manchester and accommodation.
