About

The Music Education course at Kingston University is designed to both broaden and refine the knowledge, teaching practices, and research skills of both current and prospective music educators. 

Overview

In the Music Education course at Kingston University, you will have the opportunity to study major issues in international music education research and practices, consider issues in the UK system of music education, engage with London community and school music settings, and undertake an independent research study project.

You'll have access to our unique facilities. In partnership with world-famous record producer Tony Visconti, the British Library and Science Museum, the Visconti Studio comprises a 300m² octagonal live room stocked with rare and vintage recording equipment.

As part of the broader musical community, you will be able to enhance your performance skills by participating in the University's ensembles, or by taking one of our optional modules.

After you graduate

You will graduate prepared for a career in music education, and for progression to a management role. This course is also excellent preparation for further study, such as PhD programmes. Recent graduate destinations for this course include a wide range of educational settings in the UK and around the globe as well as in further teacher education programmes including PhD study and PGCE.

The high level of research and transferable skills you acquire during your studies also makes careers in the wider commercial and business environments available to you.

General requirements

  • A good honours degree in music from either the UK or abroad (this may be in a specialist field such as popular music, music education or music technology). Typical entry qualifications are an honours degree in music at 2.2 or above (2.1 preferred).
  • We may ask applicants to submit an essay as evidence of strength in written work.
  • Where an applicant can produce evidence of relevant experiential learning (eg work as a professional performer/composer or substantial experience as a music educator), it may be possible to consider a good honours degree in a subject other than music or advanced study in a conservatoire (which has not led to a degree) in lieu of a music degree.
