Cardiff has one of the largest and most diverse music programmes in the UK, offering a high degree of flexibility and student choice. Through its undergraduate programmes, the School offers a highly stimulating environment for students interested in a practical, scholarly and creative engagement with music.

Our undergraduate curriculum is strong in traditional musicological and musical skills, but is also wide-ranging and imaginative, reflecting contemporary developments in music and musicology.
