Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update – Department of Music
The Department expects to be operating a full teaching schedule in 2020-21, whether on campus or online or a mix of the two, with flexible teaching to accommodate all students' circumstances, even if these change through the academic year. On all programmes, for new students and for those returning to York, we aim to retain our safe and friendly atmosphere, personal contact and small-group teaching, whether or not you are here in person.
Dr Áine Sheil, Head of Department, Autumn 2020

Studying Music at the University of York gives you a unique opportunity to deepen your understanding of musical experiences and to look at how music is shaping and responding to the world.
We are internationally recognised for integrated creative, practical and scholarly approaches to music and our graduates are critical, independent thinkers.
We support a wide range of research and offer many opportunities for doctoral and postdoctoral study across the discipline.
We are very pleased that concerts are going ahead this autumn, albeit online. They will be premiered on our YouTube channel every Wednesday at 7.45pm. The performances will also be available to watch on demand.
