Research Degree Programme
All research degree candidates join the MPhil programme as 'probationary' PhD students; transfer to PhD normally takes place at the end of the second year. During your studies you will be allocated 30 hours of supervision per year, which can be divided between academic and practical supervision as negotiated with your principal supervisor and the Postgraduate Programmes Board. The fourth year of study is a writing up year, which has a reduced fee.
We welcome the finest students from around the world to learn and perform alongside globally renowned artists, ensuring they benefit from a music-making environment of the highest quality.
