Administration fee & process of entrance examination

To be certain that you can participate, the administration fee (€ 30) has to be paid within two weeks after registration. The payment needs to be done online within the application tool. The application fee is non-refundable.
As soon as we have checked your payment, we will send you a link to an online entry form. Due to the summer closure, candidates for session 2 who complete their registration and payment before July 5 will receive their online form by July 10, the others by August 20.
2.3 Prepare for the entrance examination
We ask all students from the Economic European Community (EEC) to participate live in the entrance examination. Foreign candidate students not living in Europe can take the (exploratory) artistic entrance examinations for instrument /vocal studies and composition exceptionally via video recording. All candidates must make an online motivation video. Candidates who participate online will also make a recording of their practical test. Candidates for Composition make a portfolio (one pdf document) in addition to a motivation video.
2.4 Live & online
Live entrance examinations will take place at the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp, Desguinlei 25, 2018 Antwerp. Candidates are expected to be available on the day(s) of the entrance examination and to arrive at the announced time.
For online entrance examinations, the jury will use the motivation video and the portfolio. An online motivational interview with the candidate and the jury will take place on the day of the entrance examination.
The results of the artistic entrance examinations are sent by e-mail to the e-mail address provided by the candidate within one week after the end of the audition period.
A prospective student may register for the same entrance examination only once per academic year, unless at the express request of the jury after the first participation.
