Music Education MA: Entry requirements

What you need to apply for this course

  • 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 (eg 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.

Prior learning - AP(E)L

Applicants with prior qualifications and learning may be exempt from appropriate parts of a course in accordance with the University's policy for the assessment of prior learning and prior experiential learning. Contact the faculty office for further information.
