Summary

A diverse music Composition degree designed to prepare you for a varied and creative career.

  • Develop your music alongside experienced composers and creative practitioners.

  • Hear your music played by professional musicians and fellow students.

  • Work to professional standard and understand contemporary music contexts.

During the Master’s in Composition, you’ll develop your skills as a composer and deepen your understanding of current artistic and professional trends in music.

You’ll be supported through weekly seminars, tutorials, and workshops with professional musicians. You’ll also work on your creative and technical skills, commenting critically on your own and others’ work.

This is a broad Music Master’s with a strong focus on experimentation within your areas of interest as a composer. Our aim is to inspire, support, and enrich your knowledge while you pursue your own unique interests. We set this against a wider consideration of current music and developments in contemporary musical thought.

The MA and MRes Composition pathways offer a different emphasis. MRes Composition provides an opportunity to conduct an extended, focused composition project combining both creative work and academic research. MA Composition provides a space to explore a wider range of approaches and to experiment with new ideas.Composers on both pathways are taught together, and work with the wider Music and Performance community.

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES You’ll develop a broad range of intellectual, practical and transferable skills. We’ll help you develop a portfolio career built around your creative practice, drawing in other related areas of work such as teaching; editing; performing; and work in other areas of the creative industries.
