Course summary

From medieval polyphony to global hip hop, our music degree courses provide a broad musical education covering history, culture and society taught in exciting research-led modules. Our course does not favour one kind of music over another, and our flexible approach means that you can choose modules from any other discipline to complement your music studies. You will be taught in tutorials, seminars and lectures by world-class academics. Our skills-oriented training will provide valuable transferable skills to prepare you for any career that requires critical thinking, teamwork and writing skills.We are first in the UK for music research (REF, 2014). Our flexible course offers an innovative range of options across performance, composition, music history and criticism, music technology, music therapy and the music profession. We also offer academic and performance bursaries for outstanding students and opportunities for all students to work in professional environments and live music venues, including Turner Sims, famous for its professional concert series.
