We are a leading department for teaching and research in Music focusing on the integration of practical music with rigorous scholarship.
York offers a superb choice of ensembles and opportunities. We provide a bursary for all undergraduate students in support of instrumental or vocal studies, and you can take part in music from medieval to contemporary in a wide variety of genres and styles.
Our teaching is detailed and supportive, winning recent awards for excellence on campus. We have an enthusiastic and dedicated staff who are committed to helping you hone your employable skills and musical vision.
We strive to make a difference within the musical world today, and York alumni are employed in key positions throughout the music, broadcast and education sectors. Take a look at our news archive and you’ll find that our students are distinctive within an increasingly competitive environment.
