    Our BMus Music offers you the opportunity to develop your skills, knowledge and advanced understanding of the subject needed by today’s musicians. You study a wide range of music, looking at earlier, historical styles as well as music that has evolved over the past few decades. Your technical skills in performance and music notation are an important feature of this degree, and we also encourage you to find your own creative voice with specialist composition modules.

    Within the School of Music and Fine Art, you can also explore music’s relationship with other disciplines and we offer modules in music for film, television and live events. A distinctive feature of this programme is that we encourage you to collaborate with students from our other programmes, such as Fine Art and Event and Experience Design, building important teamworking skills that have a direct relevance to many music careers

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
