Entry Requirements

Entry to this training demands a high standard of musicianship (see our Auditions page), a mature personality compatible with training as a therapist, and graduate level academic skills. The programme contains substantial academic components.

Applicants are therefore expected to have already completed an undergraduate Honours degree at the point of application. Music is the most common subject, although applications from graduates in other subjects are welcome. Experience of working with people in the community in either health or education settings is highly beneficial.
