About the course

Unleash your creativity on our BMus Music degree. This programme has been designed with practical musicians in mind, whether you want to immerse yourself in performance, composition, analysis or music psychology. Students on the BMus degree take all of their modules in music, whereas the BA Music degree provides the option to take a free elective module in a different subject (e.g. education, psychology, English). As well as studying the broad subject of music, you'll develop specialisms in a range of musical traditions. Hull is home to some of the finest music facilities in the country. You can enjoy 24-hour access to the latest industry-standard recording studios as well as brand new rehearsal rooms and performance spaces. Our newly-refurbished concert auditorium, the Middleton Hall, is a world-class venue for classical concerts, rock gigs, music theatre and cinema, with its own recording facilities. 

You'll be taught by expert staff, and have the opportunity to get involved in a wealth of extracurricular activities. These include staff-led ensembles, such as the University Camerata, Chapel Choir and Ensemble Fractus, as well as student-led ensembles, plus a range of workshops, collaborative projects and productions. We've also developed internships with professional organisations like Hull Truck Theatre and Opera North.
