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.

Current notes for organ applicants (Christ's first choice)
  • The application process for organ scholarship applicants applying in Sept/Oct 2024 is different from previous years. Please ensure that you have read the organ scholarship information on the university website carefully.
  • Before applying, please ensure that you read the admissions pages thoroughly in combination with the details for organ applicants below. In particular it's essential to read the relevant subject page and to check if there is an admissions test (if yes you need to know whether it requires registration and by what deadline).

 

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.

The application process for organ scholarship applicants takes place in two parts. First of all you submit your Organ Scholarship application and have your musical ability assessed. Then you apply via UCAS and take part in the normal academic assessment process.
