Assessment & monitoring

At every stage, we assess the progress of students through their chosen course. Performance students will be given an exam-based assessment each year, and students’ progress in academic studies and the optional subjects they have chosen are also tested by a mixture of assessed coursework and end-of-year exams. Our practical and academic assessments and auditions are rigorously monitored by external examiners.

CUK conservatoires constantly strive to improve the quality of what we offer. Students are invited to comment on their training and performance activities, and we always take these comments seriously.
