Interview requirements

All Orchestral Management, Media and Communication, and Sound Production applicants will be interviewed by video call by the program tutor and a member of the AYO staff following the due date. Interviews are roughly 15 minutes long and will involve a short discussion about your career aspirations and reasons for applying to the program.

Portfolio Requirements

Applicants will also be asked to provide a portfolio of supporting materials. Portfolios and interview results are confidential and will not be discussed outside AYO, nor will they be made available to any other organisation.
