    School of Music
    The School of Music brings together internationally acclaimed scholars, composers and performers, to set the highest standards in music research. In 2001 Bretton Hall College was merged with the existing Department of Music to become part of the University 's School of Music, one of the largest academic departments of its kind in the country. The School recently moved to new purpose-built premises at the heart of the Leeds campus.

    The Brotherton Library has a fine music collection. The School itself holds a reference library of scores and recordings, including the Pasco Clark Collection of Opera Vocal Scores. The British Library lending division is also nearby in Boston Spa.

    The School has its own teaching spaces and practice rooms. There is a postgraduate room and plentiful computer facilities including a Sibelius music processor. The School's active research in the field of music technology and electro-acoustic composition ensures that it has an excellent up-to-date electronics studio. Leeds has a thriving cultural and music scene.

    The University offers a number of scholarships, which are augmented by departmental awards including the Stanley Burton Scholarship (for PhD study, offering fees paid + £6,500 maintenance grant) and a number of other scholarships for both research and taught courses.

    What you study
    Students are required to take a compulsory module leading to a 40-minute recital and should start the course at an advanced level practically. In addition applied performance modules use individually negotiated learning contracts to allow development in a range of ensemble or pedagogical areas, as well as giving the opportunity for work in areas new to the student. There is space within the course for some options to be taken from the full range of sub-disciplines offered within the department.
