    The principal educational aim of the three-year PhD programme is to assist each student to acquire the research techniques, skills and knowledge that will enable them to make an original and significant contribution to scholarship, research or artistic practice in the discipline that is the focus of each individual's dissertation.  Given the focus of the programme on individual research excellence, it is necessarily tailored to the research interests of the student and the expertise of their supervisor.

    Learning Outcomes

    By the end of the programme students should have acquired:

    • knowledge of and expertise in the techniques and methods appropriate to their chosen subject of study;
    • the ability to engage with both teaching and research at the highest level in the contemporary academic environment;
    • a clear understanding of the scope and applicability of their research in broader contexts.

    Training for music specific research skills and transferable skills of ca 40 hours per year.

       
    One to one supervision

    Students can expect sixteen hours of supervision in the first year.  Thereafter supervisions are offered as appropriate or required.

    Posters

    In the course of their third year, doctoral students present a 20-minute paper (in the style of a conference paper) on a topic related to their PhD project, followed by a 10-minute Q&A session.

    Feedback

    Students can expect to receive an online feedback report each term.

    Assessment

    Thesis

    PhD theses should not exceed 80,000 words excluding notes, appendices, and bibliographies, musical transcriptions and examples. Candidates whose work is practice-based may include as part of a doctoral submission either a portfolio of substantial musical compositions, or one or more recordings of their own musical performance(s).

    Other

    Progress assessments are made in years one, two and three of doctoral study.


    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.
