Our undergraduate course includes performance, composition, musicology and ethnomusicology, and embraces an exciting and eclectic range of musical styles and traditions, from western classical music to commercial music, jazz and pop. We also offer modules in arts administration, music therapy, community music and music technology. Flexible options allow you to specialise in composition, performance or music history and criticism, or to construct a rounded programme across two or more areas. You can choose to take up to 25 per cent of your programme in one or more subjects from across the University. We are first in the UK for music research (REF, 2014). Our flexible course offers an innovative range of options across performance, composition, music history and criticism, ethnomusicology, music technology, music therapy and the music profession. We also offer academic and performance bursaries for outstanding students and opportunities for all students to work in professional environments and live music venues, including Turner Sims, famous for its professional concert series.
