How to apply
Advice to applicants
You should include a personal statement (no more than 500 words) that demonstrates your understanding of the subject and your motivation for wanting to study the programme.
You will need to submit scores (preferably as PDF files) of two or three recent compositions, for a variety of forces or dealing with a variety of musical contexts if possible, and if available, links to recordings of performances of these works.
These should be sent directly to the course director, Dr Richard Whalley ( Richard.Whalley@manchester.ac.uk ).

How your application is considered
Applications are mainly considered on the basis of an assessment of past and predicted academic achievements, the academic reference(s) and any other supplementary evidence that supports the application. Once we have an application that is ready for a decision, the admissions tutor (often the Programme Director) will relay the decision to the admissions team, who will send you this decision.
Please note that your application is usually received by the School 24 to 48 hours after the time you submit it. If you have not provided documentation that allows the admissions tutor to make a decision, we will contact you.
