University of Sussex
Our PhD courses provide you with the support and resources necessary to complete an original and substantial piece of research. The main fields in which research supervision is available are composition, musicology and music theatre. It is also possible to study for an MPhil. Contact us in good time to discuss your research proposal so we can put you in touch with the best supervisors for your work and help you develop your application. Entry in September is normally recommended to enable you to get the benefit of the many research events that take place throughout the autumn and spring, and also to benefit from induction and research training opportunities. You normally have two supervisors; they offer complementary perspectives on your work, perhaps reflecting a theory and practice balance, crucial for your development as a researcher. They help you devise a detailed programme of study tailored to the individual research project and offer regular guidance and feedback until completion.
Limited funds to offset research expenses are available directly from the University of Sussex; there are financial opportunities for research students to contribute towards undergraduate teaching.
