ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS AND ACADEMIC STANDARDS

NOTE: The Bachelor of Music degree is under revision. Students who entered the programme prior to September 1996 may continue under the regulations in this Calendar. Students entering the programme in September 1996 will follow the new programme. Contact the School of Music for details.

1) Applicants to the School of Music must complete the School's application form in addition to the "Application for Admission to the University" form. Both forms are available from the University Registrar's Office. Deadline for application for admission to the School of Music is January 31st.

Admission to the School is possible in the Fall Semester only. Notwithstanding the above, students who have withdrawn from the music degree programme may apply to be re-admitted in either the Fall or Winter Semester. Candidates must satisfy the general admission requirements of the University and must satisfy additional requirements of the School of Music as set out below:

(A) Placement Test in Theory and Musicianship.

This test in basic rudiments, aural perception, and simple four-part harmony will be given at a time and place to be announced. As a result of this test, students may be required to undertake remedial work in theory and/or aural perception.

(B) Audition.

(i) Principal Instrument: All applicants are required to audition to the satisfaction of the School on the instrument that they have chosen as their principal applied study in their degree programme (i.e. voice, piano, organ, or any orchestral instrument.)

Transfer students and students seeking re-admission to the music degree programme must audition to determine their placement in applied study courses. The level of audition should be equivalent to the jury requirements for the applied study course prerequisite to the course to which they are seeking admission. Jury requirements are available from the office of the School of Music.

(ii) Piano Proficiency Test: Applicants whose principal applied study is other than keyboard are also required to demonstrate a reasonable technical facility at the piano. Applicants whose level of attainment is not acceptable to the School will be required to repeat and pass the Piano Proficiency Test prior to registering for Music 2113. Students are advised to contact the School of Music regarding scheduling of the test and for information about private remedial piano instruction.

Details of audition requirements are specified in a brochure available from the School of Music.

2) With the exception of those who have completed Music 450B or 455B, students who are not registered for one of Music 150A/B, 250A/B, 350A/B, 355A/B, 450A/B, 455A/B or Education 403X at the end of the regular registration period will be deemed to have withdrawn from the music degree programme.

3) A student whose average in Music courses falls below 65 per cent in any semester will be placed on probation.
