Submit a recorded audition and supporting documents

The Conservatorium is committed to the health and safety of our applicants and staff. For this reason, all auditions for the Trimester 1, 2022 intake will require applicants to submit a recorded audition as the first of a two-phase process.

After you have submitted your QTAC application and paid for your audition via GriffithPAY, the next step is to prepare your recorded audition and check if your specialisation/s have any other specific requirements, such as a folio, music or performance CV. Phase 1 recorded auditions and supporting documents due dates:

  • 251722 Bachelor of Music – due by 31 August 2021
  • 251782 Bachelor of Acting – due by 31 August 2021
  • 251772 Bachelor of Musical Theatre – due by 31 August 2021

To prepare your recorded audition and supporting documentation, review the audition requirements relevant to the program and specialisations you are applying for. We also recommend that you check out the audition video tips and audition checklist at the bottom of this page for assistance with preparing your submission.

Once your recorded audition is ready along with the supporting documentation that is required, you are ready to submit these via the registration form below. The preferred form of video submission is YouTube or Vimeo and the preferred form of supporting documents is Google Drive or Dropbox.

How to submit your recorded audition

You will need the following information when registering:

  • QTAC application number (this is a nine-digit number)
  • GriffithPAY receipt number
  • links to your recorded video auditions/s on YouTube or Vimeo
  • link to your folio uploaded to Dropbox or Google Drive (if your chosen specialisation under the Bachelor of Music is Creative Music Technology or Composition)
  • link to your music CV uploaded to Dropbox or Google Drive (if applying for the Bachelor of Music – all specialisations)
  • your completed application form/performance CV (if applying for the Bachelor of Acting or Bachelor of Musical Theatre).

You will be able to submit your Phase 1 video audition and documentation here from 3 August 2021.

Audition requirements

We understand that during the lockdown period applicants will not have had access to the tuition and ensembles that they would have had in other conditions, and these circumstances have been taken into consideration.

We have therefore put in place an Audition process to ensure the health and safety of all our applicants and staff, and a 2-phase process to ensure that no applicant will be disadvantaged because of this.

Phase 1 requires you to submit an audition video and CV. You will be considered based on the quality of your performance: your skills, ability and technique – not the quality of the recording, which can be done using your phone, or tablet. From this we will determine whether you move to an audition and interview in Phase 2, or interview only.

Phase 2 auditions will be held from 27 September – 2 October 2021 with the various specialisations held on specific days. If you are located interstate or overseas, and are unable to attend an audition in person at the Queensland Conservatorium in the event of a lockdown, please indicate this on your audition registration form when submitting your phase 1 video audition.

To prepare your recorded audition and supporting documentation, review the audition requirements relevant to the program and specialisations you are apply for. We also recommend that you check out the audition video tips and audition checklist at the bottom of this page for assistance with preparing your submission.
