Music with Education
1st degree at British Bachelor's standard at 2.2 or higher. Candidates with a 2.2 degree must however achieve a 2.1 in a substantial project in their chosen area of study (such as a dissertation, a portfolio of compositions, or an extended recital). English proficiency (for non-native English or Welsh speakers): IELTS English test with a score of 6.5 (with no element below 5.5). Musicologists may be asked to submit a piece of written work of 3,000-5,000 words that can either be a discussion of a selected topic from music history, or an analysis of a selected composition; the essay must be academic in style, and must include footnotes and a full bibliography. Composers may be asked to submit representative samples of their creative work (normally 2 or 3 pieces); these can be notated scores, or audio recordings, or both, and may be sent on paper, as a data DVD, or via a weblink such as Dropbox. Performers will be asked to audition or, where this is not feasible, to submit a recent unedited recorded video performance featuring contrasting repertoire (25-30 minutes). A sample of academic work may also be requested from performers.
Part 1: students will take 2 modules in the School of Education: curriculum development; assessment in education. Non-native English or Welsh speakers may replace one of these with advanced English-language classes. Students may also take an optional placement in a local school or college. Students may choose 2 modules from a wide range of options in the School of Music, including: performance and history; current musicology; composition in context; music in historical context; music in society; performance studies in education; composition project; performance project; independent research project. Part 2: The part 2 project, which is completed over the summer, is similarly flexible in format. It will normally include a dissertation element, and may also include a lecture-recital, a portfolio of compositions for educational use, pedagogical materials for your voice or instrument, or an alternative format agreed in advance with the lecturing staff.
