PGDip Music

Our PGDip in Music gives you time, facilities and authoritative guidance from academics and professional musicians to concentrate on your own musical interests.

The Postgraduate Diploma is a year-long programme of study. You will complete three projects, centering around your chosen pathway and your particular musical interests, with class teaching and authoritative guidance from academics and professional musicians. Typically there are around six students working with a particular supervisor on a pathway, and during the year you will concentrate on your own specialist projects. There are no major pieces of work thrust upon you that do not respect the independent nature of your pursuits. Instead, you produce Guided Submissions for the first two terms and an Independent Submission during the summer term and summer vacation.

You will be taught alongside MA students, but the Postgraduate Diploma is a 120-credit degree rather than the 180 credits of an MA.
