Admission Tests

In order to become a student of the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel you will have to pass an artistic admission test. Most branches and specializations have two sessions of admission test: one at the end of April / beginning of May and one at the end of August / beginning of September. As candidate you will enroll for one of these sessions. 

Admission test dates

Via this link you will be able to find all dates of the admission test. This calendar is fixed, although some changes may occur due to unforeseen circumstances. 

The deadline for registration for the admission tests is 2 weeks before the date of the admission test for your main instrument.


In order to process your registry for the admission test we ask a one-time administrative fee of 30 euro. If you enroll for more than one admission test we only charge this fee once. Your registry for the Admission tests is only official upon payment of this fee. 

If you are already a student of the KCB and you participate in a new admission test, you will not have to pay this fee again.
