The Music Department offers a number of scholarships, awards and work opportunities for postgraduate students. However, applicants are advised to investigate as wide a range of funding sources as possible, and are encouraged to pursue external funding sources before and during their postgraduate studies.
Please note that you must have been offered a place on one of our postgraduate courses to be eligible to apply for any of the awards listed.
For more information about postgraduate funding, contact Catherine Duncan.
