Information for organ applicants

This page has information for students who would like to be considered for an organ scholarship.

Some students apply both for an undergraduate place at Christ's and for an organ scholarship. You can check the vacancies for organ scholars at Christ's here.
 

The application process for organ applicants

If you would like to apply for an organ scholarship, please see the organ scholarship information on the university website, which includes details of the application process and auditions. You may also like to get in touch with our Director of Music.

It is particularly important to note that the application deadline is early for applicants who would like to be considered for an organ scholarship. It is 1 September, which is likely to be before you return to school. It is therefore very important to that you speak with your academic and musical referees in advance to ensure that they are available to send your reference at the right time.
