Organ Scholar

The Dean and Chapter of Exeter Cathedral wishes to appoint an organ scholar for the academic year 2022/23. The appointment is for one year, but may in certain circumstances be extended for a further year. The position will be ideally suited to a recent graduate seeking to gain experience of the daily duties of a busy cathedral musician, though applications from suitably qualified gap year students (ie. pre-university) would be welcome also.

Choral Scholars

Choral scholarships (countertenor, contralto, tenor, bass) are normally held in conjunction with degree courses at Exeter University, (any subject), provided that lecture times do not clash seriously with choir commitments. The Scholarships are normally tenable for three years, though this may be extended for an extra year in certain circumstances.
