The music programmes at Oxford Brookes are versatile and flexible, as our students engage with popular and film music, contemporary composition, music production and various traditions of classical music. The courses strike an ideal balance between practical, academic and vocational elements, and work placements are built into the programmes. We want our students to understand music and sound critically; engage with contemporary debates; and develop skills and expertise. Our graduates excel in employment and progression to further academic study at Masters and PhD level. The university boasts many music societies, and Oxford is a great place to experience live music.
