Postgraduate research

We are home to an active and engaged postgraduate community. Our postgraduates are encouraged to play an integral role in our research culture, including participating in research events, projects, and seminars.

A series of workshops and masterclasses allow postgraduate composers and performers to work directly with distinguished artists and practitioners.

Our research-active staff offer supervision in all areas across musicology, composition, and performance. You may specialise in any of these areas for PhD, presenting work in one of three different formats: a thesis, a portfolio of compositions with commentary, or a performance recital with supporting thesis.
