Undergraduate Vocal Studies: your experience

The Vocal Faculty attracts talented singers of all voice types from all over the world. Our students benefit from unrivalled opportunities and one-to-one lesson time. Our intensive course not only focuses on vocal and technical study, but also includes weekly repertoire coaching and specialist training in historical performance and new music.

Our students are driven, dedicated and versatile and have a reputation for outstanding quality and professionalism.


Our singing professors are dedicated teachers with considerable experience as active professional performers. Collectively, they have a wide-range of industry knowledge and insight into all aspects of the profession. Specialists teach specific subject areas such as languages, opera and early music. Visiting Professors come in frequently to work with students in masterclasses, give lectures, and teach one-to-one lessons.

If you audition successfully, you will be offered two free consultation lessons organised by the Head of the Vocal Faculty. We aim to match you with an ideal teacher who will help develop your voice to its full potential.
