Graduates of this course have pursued successful careers in musical and non-musical fields.
Many are continuing to achieve success as composers, in some cases receiving professional performances from soloists, ensembles and orchestras all over the world.
Others continue to further study via a PhD before securing an academic position. Some go on to teach in schools or further education, both in the UK and overseas.
Other areas of work for which advanced musical training has been directly relevant include arts management and the culture industries, music publishing, music journalism, librarianship, music therapy and performance.
Careers outside of music have included accountancy, law, social work and human resources.
The University has its own dedicated Careers Service that you would have full access to as a student and for two years after you graduate. At Manchester you will have access to a number of opportunities to help boost your employability .
