Auditions Training: spring 2019

A new Training programme will start in September 2019, auditions will be held from January till April 2019. The process consists of two phases: a one day pre-selection in different cities and a seven day final audition in Brussels.

WELCOME
Welcome to our information page concerning the audition for our upcoming Training programme 2019-2022. P.A.R.T.S. only opens up its Training programme every three years to students between the ages of 18 and 23. The new Training programme will begin its three-year course in September 2019 for which auditions are organised during the spring of 2019.

AUDITION PROCESS
The audition is divided in two steps:

1) You must register online for a pre-selection which will take place in various cities across Europe and beyond between January and March.

2) Only candidates who have passed the pre-selection will receive an official invitation with a detailed explanation of the final audition. The final audition process takes place in Brussels between April 8 until April 14. The entire full-week participation in this final stage of the audition is necessary to be selected for the Training, so block the dates now!
