Our PhD Music (Composition) programme will see you produce a portfolio of compositions and a written commentary under the supervision of our academics.
You will be assigned a research panel consisting of your supervisor, a co-supervisor and advisor who will meet with you on a regular basis to monitor your progress.
Postgraduate students are expected to take part in the academic community of the department and the University by participating in seminars and by presenting their research at regular intervals.
Workshops and performances of postgraduate compositions are arranged through the department, and may involve Psappha, the University's ensemble-in-association, and the Quatuor Danel, the quartet-in-residence, among other professional and student performers.
