Overview

Each student has a supervisory committee, consisting of a principal supervisor, a personal tutor, and another staff member with relevant expertise. Research students have regular meetings with their principal supervisor (normally once a fortnight), and are welcome to consult other members of their committee as appropriate. They are encouraged to present reports on their work in seminars and colloquia during their period of study.

If the submission includes non-textual materials (such as a critical edition), the word length is normally reduced.

Final assessment is by means of a viva voce examination by an appointed panel consisting of an internal examiner from within the School (not identical with members of the supervisory committee), one external examiner who is an expert in the field, and a chair.

Research Opportunities

The School of Music has long experience of establishing collaborative links, often combined with full funding. Recent Music by Research projects from Bangor University , have been carried out in association with organisations such as Venue Cymru and the National Waterfront Museum.
