Entry requirement for international students

Students need a good honours degree in music from either the UK or abroad (this may be in a specialist field such as popular music, music education or music technology). Typical entry qualifications are an honours degree in music at 2.2 or above (2.1 preferred). We may ask applicants to submit an essay as evidence of strength in written work. Where an applicant can produce evidence of relevant experiential learning (e.g. work as a professional performer/composer or substantial experience as a music educator), it may be possible to consider a good honours degree in a subject other than music or advanced study in a conservatoire (which has not led to a degree) in lieu of a music degree. Overseas students will be required to demonstrate IELTS academic test in English with an overall score of 6.5, with no element below 6.0, TOEFL IBT with overall score of 88 with individual skills of R=22, L=21, S=23, W=22.

* Please check with your chosen school for the exact entry requirements for your programme.
