New students are admitted to the School of Music for the Fall semester only. The deadline for applications for fall semester is the preceding 15 January. Late applications are considered under special circumstances and in performance media for which studio space is available.
If you are new to Memorial University, you can apply to the School of Music through the Registrar's Office Web site.
During the application you will be asked:
- to select your audition instrument. If you are auditioning under more than one instrument, you will need to complete a separate application for each.
- to print or download the Teacher Reference form. Ask a musician who knows you well (your current private music teacher, school music teacher, choir or band conductor, etc.) if she or he would be willing to write a reference for you. Provide your referee with the "teacher reference form" and request that she or he complete and return it to the Office of the Registrar (see address below) before 15 February.
- to submit official academic records from high school or other post-secondary institutions, if applicable to:
The Office of the Registrar
Memorial University of Newfoundland
St. John’s, NL A1C 5S7
- to type your summary of musical experiences and objectives.
To apply for admission click here. Note: while filling out your application, you will be asked to indicate where you intend to audition. If you are not able to attend the St. John's, Halifax or Moncton auditions mark "distance". Email us at email@example.com to indicate whether you will audition by CD/DVD or videoconferencing. Please note that, while we will do our best to accommodate all audition requests, the Halifax and Moncton auditions have limited spaces.
If you are a current Memorial University student and wish to transfer to the School of Music from another discipline, you must submit a completed Application for Admission form to the School of Music, teacher reference form and a summary of musical experiences and objectives. Both forms can be downloaded and printed (requires Adobe Acrobat Reader, available free).
Incomplete files or late applications may jeopardize admissibility.
