The examination panel can give you additional assignments to determine your skills and abilities. For instance, depending on your main subject, you may be asked to play some scales or arpeggios, to undertake a short sight-reading exercise, to improvise or create a short composition on a given theme, etc. During an interview, the examination panel can test a candidate's knowledge in a narrower field of specialisation, as well as his or her general cultural knowledge. The examination panel verifies whether your English language skills are sufficient to start your studies in the Preparatory Course.
A Preparatory Course takes 1 or 2 years to complete, after which you can apply to Bachelor studies.
