Applications must be made by completing an application form accessible from 1 November. 

As part of your application, you will be required to pay an audition fee of £80. Once we have received your application form, we will contact you with instructions on how to pay the fee. 

Your application will only be accepted after you have submitted the application form and paid your application fee. Following receipt of your audition fee, you will be allocated a first-round audition.

The following will be required:

  • Two references by industry professionals (details included on the application form). References should be written by music or theatre professionals (for example directors, agents, established singers, accompanists, heads of departments), but not your current teacher or any previous teachers.
  • A recent photograph

  • A completed Equal Opportunities questionnaire. This information will not be made available to the audition panel, but will help NOS to monitor and be accountable for its equal opportunities and diversity objectives.
