Short courses with Oxford University

The study of music touches upon every aspect of human life – physical, intellectual, emotional and social.

Music can be studied from a wide variety of perspectives: by reading, listening, performing and composing; by studying composers and musical forms; by exploring the music of the past and the present, and the music of other countries; and by investigating the relationships between the various parts of a composition. 

Some music courses can be studied for credit which means they can count towards a recognised qualification, such as our Undergraduate Certificate of Higher Education.
