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.
Welcome to Music and Music Technology at the University of Huddersfield. Huddersfield offers an inspiring and creative environment for music-making, covering everything from classical to pop to experimental and beyond. 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. In addition to our specialist BMus(Hons) courses in Music Performance and Popular Music and our well-established BMus(Hons) Music), we offer an excellent range of Music Technology and Production courses. You'll study in superb, purpose-built facilities on state-of-the-art equipment, supported by staff who combine research and teaching excellence with professional and industry experience. You can explore our facilities for rehearsal, performing, recording and creating in this video.
We asked some of our students and graduates to tell you what it's like to study Music and Music Technology at Huddersfield. Chloë and Anna talk about the Music BMus(Hons) degree. Julian talks about the Music Technology and Popular Music BA(Hons).
All of our courses include an optional year’s study abroad or 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.
We hope you enjoy finding out more about us and look forward to you joining us here at Huddersfield.
