|We are proud to announce that we were recently awarded the Queen's Anniversary Prize for 'world-leading work to promote, produce and present contemporary music to an international audience'. This represents one of the most coveted distinctions in UK Higher Education.|
At Huddersfield, we offer a flexible range of contemporary courses for modern musicians. In addition to our specialist BMus(Hons) courses (Music Performance, Popular Music and our well-established BMus(Hons) Music), we offer an excellent range of Music Technology and Production courses, within a vibrant and stimulating environment for music making. We cover everything from classical to pop to experimental and beyond. You’ll study in superb, purpose-built facilities on state-of-the-art equipment, supported by staff with a blend of research excellence and industry experience. Whether you are interested in creative, historical, analytical, or technical approaches - in performance, composition, musicology, production or understanding how music technology works ‘under the bonnet’ - we have a course for you.
All of our courses include an optional year’s work placement, giving you real-world experience that will enhance your employability and which enables our students to graduate with skills that lead to excellent career opportunities.
