Music

There are five pathways in this flexible MA programme: - Composition - Medieval Music - Musicology - Performance - Russian Music. The units you take will vary according to your chosen pathway, but all include basic music training units, such as Research Skills for Musicians, specialised units specific to the pathway, and a large menu of optional units. These are followed by a major project: a musicological dissertation or edition for musicologists (including those on the Russian Music and Medieval Music pathways), a minor and a major recital for performers, or a portfolio of compositions for composers.

Entry requirements

MA: An upper second-class honours degree (or international equivalent) in music, as well as suitable skills and experience in music. All applicants will be asked a series of subject-specific questions as part of the application. Applicants for the Composition or Performance pathways are required to submit a portfolio of work. For further information on the required portfolio please see the Department of Music website. Non-traditional qualifications may also be considered. See international equivalent qualifications on the International Office website.
