Check the programme of your artistic entrance examination:

For foreign students there is the possibility to do an audition by DVD.


- the DVD contains the same programme as requested for a live entrance exam

- to be representative, the recordings on the DVD are maximum 1 year old

- the result on this test applies only for the entrance examination for the instrument but it is binding: if passed the candidate does not have to do a live examination upon arrival at the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp. In case of failure in a DVD audition during the first audition session, the student is allowed to participate once more in the second audition session but only with a live performance.

- if necessary, the jury can ask students applying for jazz/popular music to take an extra examination and/or interview with live video call (Skype, Facetime, WhatsApp, …)

- students who wish to start in B1 or B2, have to do tests for solfège and hearing upon arrival to determine their level. In case the student is applying for jazz/popular music he/she also needs to succeed for this test in order to be accepted.

- for students starting at other levels, a comparison between the subjects already taken and the courses of the Royal Conservatoire will be made. These students might have to do tests to define the level for certain courses.

Only when all these elements are examined, students auditioning by DVD  will be accepted and will be informed about their appropriate study level at the Royal Conservatoire.
The deadline for sending in a DVD is 15th August. We need to receive the DVD before 18 o clock 15th of August.
