About Music at Cardiff University

Challenge yourself academically and musically while tailoring the programme to meet your ambitions for the future.

Our MA Music programme is an opportunity to challenge yourself academically and musically, while developing a specialism in performance, composition or music studies.

We place an emphasis on flexibility and student choice. You'll be able to personalise a significant proportion of your study, tailoring the programme to meet your career goals and ambitions.

You'll study in a research-led university environment and have the opportunity to engage with new research from scholars at Cardiff University and beyond.
