We have a long tradition of academic excellence and our courses are unique for the variety of options available. We aiming to ensure that our graduates have the capacity to become national and international leaders in their fields. Our practice-based Music teaching presents unique opportunities for student compositions to be performed, for interactions between live music and electronics, and for historically-informed performance arising from our musicological activity. You will make and study music with other, like-minded young musicians, composers and musicologists, honing your craft and exploring the field. You also have the opportunity to choose modules in other subjects, broadening your educational experience and career prospects. In your final year, you will have the opportunity to follow a specialism of your own, stretching your abilities and proving yourself.You will be part of a vibrant music community, performing in, or attending performances at, public venues such as Pontio or the magnificent Prichard Jones Hall. Your musical experience will extend beyond the lecture room, with opportunities to join the University Symphony Orchestra, Chamber Choir or one of the many student societies for Music, such as Opera, Concert Band, DJ, Musical Theatre, and String Orchestra.
