Master of Music (Composition)

The Master of Music in Composition follows the same programme as the MA but with the addition of a Master’s project. Most composition students select this two-year MMus option in order to take advantage of the extra classes and project support. This is also the usual option for those considering doctoral study in the longer term.

All postgraduate MMus composers engage in academic project-work and go on to prepare a Masters Project. This can take the form of a concert based around your own research, compositions or performance interests, or a substantial written document - or even a combination of both.

Some composers choose to take the one-year Master of Arts (MA). This programme includes the same project work, but does not have the final Masters Project or academic project-work.

The programme path and length can be discussed at the entrance interview and adjusted as appropriate, you are not tied to the option you choose when you submit your application in UCAS Conservatoires.
