Application Process & Deadline

The Royal Danish Academy of Music (RDAM) sets a high standard in music performance. Applications are reviewed by RDAM on a rolling basis, but all material is to be submitted no later than April 1 (fall semester) or October 1 (spring semester) so the Academy application committee can review the material.

To apply:

  1. Start your application with DIS
  2. Next, apply additionally to RDAM using their online application form found here. First, you need to create a user. Then choose ‘Search for programme’ and find ‘DIS Applicants.’ Follow the steps to create an application.

As part of your application, you must submit an unedited audition video that is 15 minutes of length. Before starting your application, read more about the specific audition requirements on the RDAM website.
