Winter 2023 – End of applications
Your student record management technician (TGDE) will do a follow-up with you to advise you of the documents needed for the consideration of your file. Please note that you must submit documents to two places, according to the specific needs of the interested players in the file:
- Official Université de Montréal application form, in the student center
In the comment box, please specify that you wish to submit your application for the UdeM-McGill residency in piano–vocal arts.
- Upload site of the Université de Montréal Faculty of Music
Here is the list of documents required for the residency:
b) Two letters of recommendation
c) Curriculum vitae: an outline of your experiences and qualifications, including all your achievements connected to music, your employment, your academic qualifications, your publications, your distinctions, your awards, your contributions and your important accomplishments.
d) Letter of intent: describe your reasons for applying to the UdeM-McGill residency in piano–vocal arts. Indicate skills and/or experiences that are significant. Describe your goals with regard to performance, research and career, your expectations concerning the residency, and your perception of your own strengths and weaknesses.
Documents must be uploaded in PDF format. As concerns video files, unlisted links on the YouTube or Vimeo platforms, accessible directly without a password, will be accepted. Keys are performers’ choices.
Given the distance away of certain candidates, the Faculty of Music’s Graduate Studies Committee will accept a recording in support of their application. That recording is subject to the same criteria as those that apply to auditions (see conditions specific to programs).
Audition and interview fees
In addition to the admission fees set by Université de Montréal, the Faculty of Music requires an administrative fee of $53.50 for the admission audition and/or interview. That amount is paid only once, even if candidates must be invited to a number of auditions and/or interviews during the admission process, provided however that there has been no interruption between two consecutive study programs. Moreover, these fees are non-refundable.
Payment methods accepted: Visa, Visa Debit, MasterCard, MasterCard Debit
