Computer Music

The future of the music industry lies with computer technology - and what we can do with that technology. It affects how we create, perform and distribute music. Whether you're a practising musician, a sound engineer or a professional looking to combine your background and passion for music, we'll help you explore key concepts at the heart of music, science and technology. Immersed in a thriving research centre, our future-facing course will give you a wealth of new career opportunities.

Entry requirements

For entry to postgraduate level, you should normally possess:

a first or upper second (2:1) degree with honours (in music, music technology or a related subject) or professional qualification, recognised as being equivalent to degree standard; or
an ordinary degree, foundation degree, higher national diploma, or university diploma, accompanied by substantial experience in an appropriate field.
If you are an overseas applicant you can check the comparability of your qualifications with the UK equivalent through NARIC, who provide an advisory service.

English language requirement

If English is not your first language, you must have proficiency in written and spoken English (normally a minimum test score of 6.5 for IELTS, or equivalent). Given the nature of the programme, you'll be expected to read and engage with complex theoretical texts and debates for which fluency in English is essential.
