Course info


The Master of Education (MEd) is an advanced taught degree programme with research elements that develops students' vocational skills by building on their music educational experience in the profession. The course is suitable for musicians engaged in education work, such as teachers, animateurs, creative education leaders and facilitators, ensemble/choir directors and coaches, and professional performers, such as orchestral players whose work includes educational activities. Students will study a combination of modules that enable them to analyse, develop and share their own practice, building a portfolio of evidence and conducting in-depth action research investigating an area of their own choice. The programme will be available part-time over a period of two to four years and is designed to fit around a professional musician's portfolio of other commitments.

The programme is suitable for: Orchestral and other graduate professional musicians who have experience in education (including creative education and community music, individual teaching, etc); Conservatoire Junior Department teachers; Music staff in specialist schools; Conservatoire professors new to Higher Education teaching; Music teachers working in schools, community and other settings, who satisfy the application requirements.
