Delivered in one of the musical capitals of the world, this highly personalised degree leads to advanced work in four areas: history of western music, ethnomusicology, performance and composition. Students interested in performance will benefit from our partnership with the Royal Academy of Music, while those interested in composition will enjoy our expert teaching and access to London’s rich contemporary music scene. The course introduces all students to a broad range of theoretical and historical approaches to music, and will develop essential skills in critical thinking, expression and research. There is plenty of opportunity at King’s to participate in concerts and chamber music groups. You may audition for the KCL Symphony Orchestra (KCLSO), participate in various other student-led ensembles such as the Jazz Society Big Band or the Modern Music Society, or sing in the Chapel Choir. Our students often gain leadership experience in these performance groups. Concerts take place throughout the year. You are eligible to take performance modules as long as you have ABRSM Grade 8 in your chosen instrument or voice. Individual performance tuition is provided with a teacher from the Royal Academy of Music.

Key benefits

Course Aims

  • Studying Music at King’s enables you to immerse yourself in the world of sound, stretching across the centuries and around the globe. Today, music is the most global cultural expression. We pride ourselves not only on the range and diversity of the modules we offer, but also on the diversity of the approaches we employ, including contemporary critical theory, historical scholarship and ethnographic studies alongside training in performance and aural skills, compositional creativity and analysis.
  • If you have ABRSM Grade 8 or equivalent in your main instrument or voice by the time you start your degree, you’re automatically eligible to take Performance modules. All students taking Performance have free individual lessons with a teacher from the Royal Academy of Music. We understand the importance of the relationship between you and your teacher so different types of RAM teachers are available during your studies, depending on your performance level and aspirations.
  • There are numerous opportunities at King’s to participate in concerts and shows, competitions and recitals. From joining the KCL Symphony Orchestra or the Chapel Choir (which regularly tours, records and broadcasts) to getting involved in the Modern Music Society, one of our award-winning a cappella groups, the Big Band, the many opera and musical theatre shows staged each year, or even establishing your own ensemble, King’s is a dynamic and exciting place to be a musician.
  • London is a city of music. We are fortunate to be located in a beautiful building on the King’s College London Strand Campus overlooking the River Thames at the heart of its arts district. You will have easy access to London’s endless live music offerings at the South Bank arts complex, the Barbican Centre, London’s opera houses and at the huge number of music clubs and concert venues in the city. Within 20 minutes’ walk of the Music Department are the West End theatres, cinemas and art galleries. The Maughan Library and its extensive music holdings will be at your disposal, many of them available in digital online formats, as well as the Senate House Library of the University of London.

 Interviews, Auditions & Portfolios

As a general rule, we do not invite applicants to an interview/audition for the programme, nor do we require any copies of previous coursework or a music portfolio.  Some applicants may be invited to an interview with the department where it is not clear that their qualifications and experiences meet the minimum entry requirements for the programme.

Contextual consideration

We make contextual offers for this programme, which can be found in the entry requirements. As part of the assessment process, we take into account contextual information to gain a more complete picture of each application. More information can be found on the Contextualised admissions website. 

Deferrals

Applications can be submitted for deferred entry by choosing the appropriate year of entry on the UCAS application.

If your circumstances change and, therefore, you need to request a deferral after an offer has been made, then we can generally permit these for this programme. However, each deferral request will be considered on a case-by-case basis and we reserve the right to decline any post-offer deferral request. Requests should be submitted via a message on King’s Apply with an explanation of the reason for making the request.

Please note, second deferral requests will only be considered where the request is due to extreme unforeseen extenuating circumstances, for example, health reasons. We are unable to permit deferral requests that go beyond two years and you would need to apply again. This is with the exception of deferrals which are due to military/national service.

Foundation courses

Applicants studying Foundation Year programmes in the UK are welcome to apply for this programme. Foundation programmes from other universities and further education providers in the UK are considered on a case-by-case basis. Whether or not we can consider a particular foundation year as suitable for study at King's depends on the content of the syllabus and modules studied. In the past we have accepted foundation programmes from a number of other institutions.

We are unable to accept Foundation programmes that are integrated as part of a main degree at another institution. These may be called Year 0 or Integrated Foundations. We are also unable to accept non-UK Foundation courses.

Once you have submitted an application, the Admissions Office may contact you via King's Apply to ask for further details on your qualification, such as a list of modules and course specifications.

The King's International Foundation Programme has guaranteed pathways available for progression onto our King's undergraduate degree programmes, and information can be found on the website.

Graduates

Our general entry requirements are based on A-level or equivalent. However, where an applicant is completing/has completed a degree, we are able to consider the degree study as part of the assessment of the application.

Generally, we would consider a minimum of a UK Bachelor degree with a 2:1 grade profile (or overseas equivalent) as meeting the entry requirements for our undergraduate degrees. However, those who have achieved/are predicted a high 2:1 or a First may be considered more competitive.

Where a programme has subject requirements, these will still need to have been met. If you have not met the subject requirements via A-level (or equivalent) then we may be able to consider the content within your degree. We would be looking for significant study of the subject across the degree programme with a 2:1 or above grading on those modules.

Once you have submitted an application, the Admissions Office may contact you via King's Apply to ask for further details on your degree study.

Personal Statement

Your personal statement is one of the many factors in the overall assessment of your application, and is your opportunity to introduce yourself to the university and inform us of your commitment to the programme and how the programme fits into your career plans, as well as any work experience or extracurricular activities you have done.

Resits

We are able to consider applicants who have retaken or are retaking their qualifications.

Transfers

Transfers into this programme are considered on a case-by-case basis.

We think it is incredibly important that you receive close personal attention. We teach most modules through a mix of lectures and seminars or small tutorial groups of four or five. For lessons in Advanced Composition and in Performance you will be taught one-to-one.

  • Written examinations

Your performance will be assessed through a combination of coursework and written/practical examinations.

Coursework contributes approximately 75% and examinations approximately 25% to your final mark.

Structure

Courses are divided into modules. Each year you will normally take modules totalling 120 credits.

This is a three-year degree course in which you will take a combination of required and optional modules to total 360 credits.

King’s College London reviews the modules offered on a regular basis to provide up-to-date, innovative and relevant programmes of study. Therefore, modules offered may change. We suggest you keep an eye on the course finder on our website for updates.

Please note that modules with a practical component will be capped due to educational requirements, which may mean that we cannot guarantee a place to all students who elect to study this module.
