In the first year you will follow the Music (Composition), proceeding in the second year to individual supervision leading to the completion of a portfolio of compositions and written work.
The Music (Composition) programme at the University of Oxford introduces a broad range of current methodologies and approaches in music scholarship.
The allocation of graduate supervision for this course is the responsibility of the Faculty of Music and it is not always possible to accommodate the preferences of incoming graduate students to work with a particular member of staff. Under exceptional circumstances a supervisor may be found outside the Faculty of Music.
Typical graduate destinations include doctoral research in music and other music-related or broadly cultural professions.
- The first year of the course is identical to that of the MSt in Music (Composition).
- The second year is spent producing coursework, comprising a project
- A portfolio of at least two well-contrasted compositions
- 21 months
