Course summary

About This Course

Research Areas

Music with specialisations in:

Musicology
Composition
Welsh Music
Performance

Normally the research project will be limited to any one area. Performers, however, will follow, in addition to their practical studies (60%), an agreed programme of original research into historical study, performance practice, editing or analysis, focusing on aspects related or central to repertoire performed (40%).

Programme Structure

As a research programme, the course does not have a modular outline. Each student receives close supervision on an individual and original project, which has the potential to make a new and substantial contribution to the field.

Each student has a supervisory committee, led by the main supervisor, assisted by two other staff members with relevant expertise.

Research students have regular meetings with their supervisor and are entitled to consult other members of their committee as appropriate. They are also encouraged to present reports on their work in seminars and colloquia during each of their period of study.

Final assessment will be through viva voce examination through an appointed panel. The panel consists of one internal examiner from within the University/School (not identical with members of the supervisory committee), one external examiner, who is an expert in the field, and a chair.

Careers

A postgraduate research degree is the highest attainable study qualification. During the programme, students will make a significant and original contribution to their subject area and become a leading expert in this field. The learning process, although supervised, is independent, self-motivated and self-directed. Together with their subject-specific expertise, this qualifies graduates for managerial positions, professional research roles, high-level creative occupations, and academic careers.
