The Artist Diploma is intended for advanced students in music on the cusp of a professional career, who are seeking to hone a distinctive musical personality through a year of post-masters study in a conservatoire environment.

In the Principal Project module you will work towards an individually negotiated programme of high-level artistic outputs such as, performances, compositions, recordings, or documented research, according to the discipline. This module is supported by 20.5 hours of one-to-one lessons from a tutor or tutors of your choices.

In the Supporting Project module, you will receive individual support and mentoring from a personal supervisor, who will help you to create an individual portfolio of supplementary activites to complement your main artistic projects. The module culminates in an oral examination that invites you to reflect critically on the artistic intentions of your work through the course of the programme.
