About the course

Based in Liverpool - birthplace of The Beatles, and a UNESCO City of Music, this programme aims to reframe and extend contemporary discourse about The Beatles beyond the historical and musicological into a broader and more robust 21st-century context.

You will explore how The Beatles, their music and their story are inextricably bound up within an increasing number of creative and cultural industries including (but not limited to): music, media and social media, tourism, and heritage. Through interactions with the Liverpool Beatles tourism and heritage sectors, you will experience first-hand the role and significance The Beatles and their legacy contribute to these industries at local, regional and national levels.

Entry Requirements

You will normally need a 2:1 honours degree, or above, or equivalent. No specific subjects are required.

We also encourage applications from those from non-traditional backgrounds, for example without a degree. In these circumstances, you must submit a piece of written work of approximately 3,000 words. This should discuss the influence of the Beatles on the city of Liverpool and its music heritage. Please be sure to cite external references in your work.

Each application will be assessed on its own merits. An interview may form part of the selection process.
