OCA News: Music MRes proposal

In conjunction with the University for the Creative Arts (UCA), we are currently exploring the viability of creating an MRes degree in Music. This would be an online course, part time over 2 years, taught in a cohort with a combination of individual supervision and group sessions.

The course would bring together the expertise from OCA and UCA’s music departments, and provide access to UCA’s recording studio over the summer break.

An MRes is a postgraduate masters in research, and we intend the course to enable students to follow an in-depth exploration of a practice-based area of their choice from composition, performance, orchestration/arrangement, musicology and music technology (potentially also covering composition for screen). 

We are currently in a very early stage of our explorations, and seeking feedback from current, former and prospective music students to see if there is a demand for a course such as this. To provide your thoughts, please fill in the survey here [https://forms.gle/MF98owQjhBhMVvKK9] by 1 September.

  • I would be very happy to see more postgraduate options from OCA, particularly in the field of research as it’s an area I would like to get into in the future.

  • It’s so wonderful to hear your support and positivity around this proposal, Nina and Fionagh. We have plans to grow the Postgraduate area, it’s really encouraging to hear your support. Carla is doing a fantastic job researching and shaping this proposal. The course sounds like a fantastic offer. I cannot wait to take it to the next stage in the process.
