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

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.

Note: The RDAM application link is posted in January for students applying for the upcoming fall semester, and August for students applying for the following spring semester. While you can always get your application started with DIS, check back during these months to apply specifically to an RDAM course for your relevant semester.

Once accepted, a personal course schedule will be worked out in coordination with DIS to fit in with your other electives at DIS.
