Postgraduate research

The Music Centre may be able to provide co-supervision on PhD projects. You will need to apply to one of the University’s academic Schools in the first instance, but early discussion with potential supervisors in the Music Centre is advised. 

Find out how to contact a research supervisor in the Music Centre.


Music tuition is available to the wider community, not just University staff and students. You can take lessons and short courses, or join an ensemble or community project. Find out more about music education and activity for the community.
