Who can apply for an audition?

Canidates must be Australian Citizens or holders of a visa granting 'Permanent Resident Status' in Australia to be eligible to apply.


Each audition is assesed on its own merits. The examiner's decision is final and no appeal can be made except on procedure. Information on individual student's performance in their audition will not be given. The purpose of the audition is for the school to select the top students as assesed by the examiners. These are the conditions under which students and parents/carers must agree to when applying to audition.
