SCHOOL OF MUSIC, UNIVERSITY OF LIVERPOOL
DEADLINE: 4 MAY 2010
The School of Music, University of Liverpool, welcomes applicants for a funded MMus in the fields of Composition or Musicology. The award will total £8000. Fees will be taken from this and the rest may be used as maintenance (as a guide, fees for the MMus 09-10 were £3,390).
The MMus aims to provide advanced academic and/or professional training in Music and Musicology. It exists in three distinct tracks, identified as Musicology, Composition and Performance. Our intention is that the student should reach a professional level of expertise in one of these tracks, as the main area of study, by the end of the course.
Musicology modules are research-led and benefit from the expertise of our newly-appointed Professor Michael Spitzer as well as Professor Anahid Kassabian, Dr. Holly Rogers, Dr. Giles Hooper and Dr. Freya Jarman. Composition modules are led by Mr. James Wishart and Mr. Matthew Fairclough.
You should apply to the School of Music for admission onto your chosen MMus pathway using the online application form. Your transcripts and references will be included in this. In addition, you must indicate your interest in the scholarship and attach a Case for Support (1000 words).
The deadline for applications is 4 May.
Interviews will be held during the week beginning 24 May.
Please note, you are advised to submit your admission application by mid-April to ensure that your application is received by the school office well in advance of the deadline.
Application forms are available by e-mailing the School’s Postgraduate Studies
