About the course

The GradDipMus programme broadens knowledge and skills in music on a general level.

You will have the chance to explore your specific area of interest and learn more about other areas of the discipline. You will build upon your professional industry experience or studies in another field through critical analysis, independent thought and exploring the social, cultural and academic contexts of music.

The GradDipMus is a solid introduction to postgraduate study in music, opening up a pathway to the Postgraduate Diploma in Music, and onto the Master of Music.

Entry requirements

You must have completed an undergraduate degree in the field of music, such as the Bachelor of Music, at a recognised university (or similar institution). If your undergraduate degree is in another field, you must demonstrate a level of musical competency appropriate for this degree.

You may need to supply an audition portfolio as part of your application to aid in the assessment of your musical competency. If this is required, we will contact you by email.
