Course content

This is a year-long programme, taught in pathways, which may be studied as an MA, PGDip or PGCert.

You will complete two projects, centring around your own musical interests (performance, composition, musicology, etc) with class teaching and authoritative guidance from academics and professional musicians and access to our excellent facilities.

Typically there are around six postgraduate students working with a particular supervisor on a pathway, and during the year you will concentrate on your own particular projects. There are no major pieces of work thrust upon you that do not respect the independent nature of your pursuits. Instead, you will produce two guided projects during the year.
