PhD in Composition

The PhD in Composition programme is part of the practice-led research activities which take place within the School. Student composers can work across a broad range of creative practice from acoustic composition through to creative work in sonic arts. Students primarily begin by focusing in one of the areas below but during the course of their studies can explore topics from both areas. The School has seven members of staff supervising postgraduate research in composition.
