We are a leading department for teaching and research in Music focusing on the integration of practical music with rigorous scholarship.
York offers a superb choice of ensembles and opportunities. We provide a bursary for all undergraduate students in support of instrumental or vocal studies, and you can take part in music from medieval to contemporary in a wide variety of genres and styles.
We strive to make a difference within the musical world today, and York alumni are employed in key positions throughout the music, broadcast and education sectors. Take a look at our news archive and you’ll find that our students are distinctive within an increasingly competitive environment.
