Details
You must hold an honours degree to study for our MA in Music. Although your degree needn't be in music, you must have the basic skills expected of a graduate in that area. The first module brings you up to date with the latest ideas and approaches in music, but does not offer remedial undergraduate training if your qualifications and/or experience are inadequate. The MA assumes that a candidate for a masters degree already has the knowledge and skills usually acquired by pursuing the subject at undergraduate level. Any student beginning the qualification without an undergraduate degree in music or equivalent experience, should do so at their own risk. You should be aware that a degree of at least 2.1 or equivalent will greatly increase your chances of successfully completing the MA.
