The Creative Arts Special Admissions Scheme offers talented Year 12 students a chance to receive an early offer to study music based on their audition and academic performance in year 11 and 12 so far, prior to getting an ATAR.
You must be a domestic student, currently undertaking a recognised Year 12 qualification to apply. All offers will require you to complete your high school qualification. The scheme does not apply to non-recent school leavers.
The degrees available under the admissions scheme are:
The following degrees are not available under CASAS: Bachelor of Music (Music Education) and Bachelor of Music degrees combined with the Bachelor of Advanced Studies.
No separate application is needed.
If you are a current HSC student in NSW, you must do the following:
You are encouraged to apply in the July round of auditions (UAC August Round 1) where you will be able to audition live and have a chance to secure an early offer before submitting HSC work or undertaking exams.
If you’re undertaking a Year 12 qualification other than the HSC, in addition to the steps above, you will also need to submit your academic results directly to the Sydney Conservatorium of Music through our online audition portal. You must provide your year 11 and 12 reports and meet the audition/portfolio and interview requirements by the relevant deadlines.
You will be assessed on your audition/portfolio, plus your academic results - either your predicted ATAR (supplied by UAC) or Year 11 and 12 results if you are interstate.
This could be due to one of two reasons: 1) You may have an ineligible course or an incorrect course listed as your UAC first preference; or 2) You may not have met the academic entry requirements. Contact Prospective Students if unsure.
From September UAC Round 1.
If you’d like to apply to combine your chosen degree with a combined Bachelor of Advanced Studies, you can wait until UAC December Round 2 once ATARs have been released and change the degree to your first preference. If you have received a CASAS offer it will remain valid. Alternatively, you can apply to transfer from the single bachelor’s degree into the combined Bachelor of Advanced Studies later in your degree.
