Course summary

The Department of Music is an internationally renowned, research-driven environment for musical study and practice. Our research outlook is both cosmopolitan and international. The Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 rated 87% of our research as either 'world leading' (4*) or 'internationally excellent' (3*). This included 100% of our research impact being considered 'outstanding' (4*) or 'very considerable' (3*) and a research environment that was similarly assessed at 100% in being 'world leading' (4*) or 'internationally excellent' (3*) for its vitality and sustainability. The department was placed 11th out of 84 submissions for the proportion of 4*+3* activity and is in the top 25% of all submissions nationally for Grade Point Average (GPA). The Department of Music has a vibrant research culture and welcomes strong applicants with original research topics for its PhD Programme (see 'Research Areas' in the 'Structure and Awards' tab). In recent years the Department has been successful in securing several Research Fellowships and Studentships.

Initially students are registered for the MPhil degree. Transfer to PhD status occurs once good progress has been made on the initial stages of the research; this can take place at the end of the first year of full-time study, the second year of part-time study, or later. The work completed at the time of transfer contributes to the PhD.
