You will be taught by a strong team of industry focused lecturers combined with regular masterclasses from professionals that are designed to educate, stimulate, and motivate. We support innovative and curious students who are willing to engage with ideas that will enhance their own creative vision and critical thinking. Occasionally, we’ll make candidates an offer of a place on the basis of their application and qualifications alone. You should have an undergraduate degree of at least upper second class standard in a subject concerned with arts and culture or another relevant/related subject. They arise too when we defend ourselves by saying that all values are relative , and that non-western cultures and subcultures have every right to make a claim on the notions of art and the aesthetic. Writing the dissertation will draw on areas studied throughout the three terms.

Classical Archaeology And Ancient History

This is a practical module that will focus on deconstruction, analysis and application of music theory with more specific focus on musical structure. Workshop sessions will enable you to apply theory, experiment with ideas, and to create improvisations and/or compositions. You will develop your practical technique and your ability to express musical ideas in practice. In the second part through undertaking a placement with an appropriate arts organisation students will be able to observe, account for and analyse contemporary management practice. Placements will take into account the particular specialised interests of students. Students will prepare a placement report that concentrates on evaluating the appropriateness of management policies and practice in relation to the organisation’s stated mission.

We encourage you to complete your application as early as possible, even if you haven’t finished your current programme of study. It’s very common to be offered a place that is conditional on you achieving a particular qualification. If English isn’t your first language, you will need an IELTS score of6.5 with a 6.5 in writing and no element lower than 6.0to study this programme. If you need assistance with your English language, we offer a range of courses that can help prepare you for postgraduate-level study.

The module will provide detailed study of selected manuscript and printed sources, with a guide to their notational systems, palaeographic features, their relation to other copies of the same repertory and their construction as documents . It will also teach methods of reading, investigating and dating documents, of locating them geographically, historically, and institutionally, and of transcribing them in accordance with the conventions of modern editorial methods. The module will necessitate visits to repositories of original sources (e.g. Sotheby’s, British Library, etc.). For historical musicologists this module – along with Sources and Resources – provides an essential foundation for their dissertation work. This module seeks to answer such questions through student performance seminars, analytical discussions of musical works, and lectures that draw on critical writings and recordings to illustrate various approaches to classical performance. Apply to study one of our courses and take the next step towards your future career.

Strategies For Performance

We nurture students to develop their own voice and practice and then connect them to the ever expanding opportunities in the world. We cannot guarantee a placement with any specific arts organisation, but we take you through a supportive process to gain a placement with an appropriate arts organisation. In this module you will have the opportunity to discuss with senior members of the cultural management profession how policies are reflected in their organisations. To deliver this module the programme works with some of our ‘Partners in Learning’. Although professional management practice is a major element of the programme, the ‘creative arts event’ is the starting point for all teaching.

This module delivers the expertise to do both, and illuminates the processes, both historical and contemporary, through which scores are prepared. Students are trained to work with scholarly resources and all manner of music sources, from manuscripts to digitized autographs to early recordings. Skills are absorbed in lectures and workshops that explore different editorial methods, and the rationales and biases that undergird them.

The ability to conduct this research in an institution that encourages lateral thinking and reaching beyond the bounds of societal structures, was truly empowering. The assessment for the specialist music component will be as given in the individual module descriptions. From asking current students about their experiences to immersing yourself in campus and accommodation tours, you will leave knowing if this place is for you. More information on mental health and wellbeing support is also provided in our Chief Executive and Principal’s recentopen letter on the Ukraine crisis. If you prefer to be backstage or behind the camera, we have lots of exciting opportunities for you to be working in our TV studio, edit suites and on our lighting rigs to direct performances or produce props for the show.

You will learn through being involved in stimulating live briefs relevant to current 21st century music industry practices. With an emphasis on the production of original work, you will learn how to collaborate with your fellow students in performance, songwriting and production, whilst acquiring a detailed knowledge and understanding of all aspects of the contemporary music business. This module will introduce you to a model for producing a business/strategic plan for an arts organisation. This is the key document required by all arts organisations, particularly those within the subsidised sector and those wishing to join it. It is currently common practice to write a business plan that considers a three-year period, which is then rolled forward on an annual basis. It is a document that should have an external and internal purpose (i.e. be suitable to send to funders, businesses, banks etc), in addition to being a reference point for staff, and board members.

We would like to contact you about news, events, activities, competitions, offers & promotions. If you want us to keep in touch then please let us know, at the bottom of this form, that you consent to receive marketing from Glasgow Life by email, post or SMS. Applications from mature students with relevant experience will also be considered. Applicants whose first language is not English – proof of IELTS overall score of 6.0 with a minimum of 5.5 in all sections (reading, writing, listening & speaking) is required. Academic achievement – we would normally expect applicants to have achieved 80 UCAS Tariff Points at entry but, whilst qualifications are important, our offers are not solely based on academic results. We may make offers based on other evidence of talent and suitability for the course.
