    The MPhil is designed for students wishing to attain a thorough grounding in musical performance studies at an advanced level, either as a preparation for doctoral research or an autonomous qualification. In the first year you will follow the MSt in Music (Performance), proceeding in the second year to individual supervision leading to the completion of a recital and a dissertation.

    The Master of Philosophy in Music (Performance) introduces a broad range of current methodologies and approaches in music scholarship.

    The first year of the course is identical to that of the MSt in Music (Performance).

    In order to proceed to the second year of the MPhil, you will normally need to obtain an average of 65% for your first year work overall, and a mark of over 70 in your final recital.

    The second year is then spent producing coursework, comprising both a recital of 45 minutes duration of at least two contrasted pieces, and a dissertation of between 17,000 and 19,000 words in musicology or ethnomusicology or a substantial edition with prefatory matter of comparable length.


    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.


    program_requirements

    Applicants are normally expected to be predicted or have achieved a first-class or strong upper second-class undergraduate degree with honours (or equivalent international qualifications), as a minimum, in music or related fields.

    For applicants with a degree from the USA, the minimum GPA sought is 3.6 out of 4.0.

    However, entrance is very competitive and most successful applicants have a GPA of 3.7, a first-class degree or the equivalent.

    If you hold non-UK qualifications and wish to check how your qualifications match these requirements, you can contact the National Recognition Information Centre for the United Kingdom (UK NARIC).

    Relevant professional experience may be considered as a substitute for academic attainment.

    The minimum Graduate Record Examination (GRE) score sought is 163 (Verbal). However, since entrance is very competitive most successful applicants will have a GRE score of 166 (Verbal) or more.
