Why study Music at Manchester?

Music at Manchester has an outstanding reputation for producing professional musicians and high-achieving graduates. Manchester is home to more professional music-making than any UK city outside of London, including four professional orchestras – the Hallé, BBC Philharmonic, Manchester Camerata and Northern Chamber Orchestra – as well as internationallyrecognised institutions such as the BBC, Bridgewater Hall and the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM).

Our courses offer you the best of both worlds: the highest standards in performance and composition, alongside academic studies driven by world-leading research in ethno/musicology and analysis.
