Course summary

Overview

We are a creative and comprehensive centre of excellent musical research, composition and performance. Research-active staff at the School of Music offer supervision in all areas across musicology, composition and performance. You may specialise in any of these areas for PhD, presenting work in one of three different formats: a thesis, a portfolio of compositions with commentary, or a performance recital with supporting thesis. We combine acknowledged research expertise in dedicated areas with a commitment to the wider scholarly world, and a clear sense of our role in the cultural life of a capital city. Strategic collaborations with international organisations, including the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Welsh National Opera, and National Museum Wales, allow us to make extensive contributions to the world of music, both within and beyond academia. We are home to an active and engaged postgraduate community. Our postgraduates are encouraged to play an integral role in our research culture, including participating in research events, projects, and seminars.
