The Audition Process
For most of our degree programmes, once you have submitted your application via UCAS Conservatoires, you will also be required to pass an audition. You can either audition in person at one of our European audition locations or in London. For most of our programmes, we also offer the option to submit a Recorded Audition.
Further guidance on how to submit a successful recorded audition can be found on the following pages:

Receive an offer and submit your English Language Test
Once you have attended an audition in person or submitted your recordings, our Admissions Team will be in contact with you to notify you of the result. If you come from a non-English speaking country, you will also be required to submit your English Language test results before you enrol. The English Language Requirements are listed on the individual course pages and can also be found here.
During your studies
EU applicants without a Settled or Pre-Settled status will now need to obtain a Student Visa to complete a further or higher education course in the UK.
Our dedicated and experienced Admissions Team will guide and support you throughout your application process. Further information can also be found on our Immigration & Visa page.
Staying in the UK after you graduate
The UK Government announced a Graduate Immigration Route in 2021 to enable international students to stay in the UK for up to two years after completing their studies. After completing a bachelor’s or master’s degree in the UK, successful applicants will be able to stay in the UK and work, or look for work, at any skill level for two years after they graduate. Further details can be found on the UK Government Graduate Route Fact Sheet.
Virtual Open Days
We understand that applying to study abroad is a big step, especially under these challenging circumstances. We run a number of Virtual Open Days throughout the year to give you opportunities to engage with our staff, current students and alumni, find out more about the range of degree programmes offered at Trinity Laban, and ask any questions you may have.
Changes to Erasmus+ and the Turing scheme
Following the UK’s departure from the EU, the UK will no longer participate in the Erasmus+ scheme. However, Erasmus+ funding that’s been already secured may still be used to fund an Erasmus+ placement in the UK until 2023. Please contact the student exchange advisers at your home institution to find out more. The UK Government has launched a new exchange programme, the Turing Scheme. We are still awaiting further updates on how this scheme will be implemented and will update this webpage as soon as more details are announced. For more information, please see our web page for incoming exchange students.
"We are all incredibly proud and honoured to have so many European students and staff. In fact, we have one of the highest percentages of EU students of any university in the country. We're looking forward to future generations of students continuing to contribute to our wonderful international community."
