We are redeveloping our diplomas, creating new higher-level qualifications to replace our DipABRSM, LRSM and FRSM in Performance, Teaching and Directing. To check deadlines for taking these diplomas, see our withdrawal information here.

Diploma Exams

We have venue guidance and procedures in place to ensure the safety of candidates, examiners and teachers. It is essential that you read and understand this guidance before you consider booking a diploma exam.

Public Venues

It may not be possible for diploma exams to take place in the same public venues as previously.

Please indicate your preferred venue on your entry form and we do all we can to accommodate this request.

If diploma exams are not running in your preferred venue, your entry will be moved to an alternative venue.

Instructions for Booking
