Our large community of PhD students, and links to seven other universities across the world, will make you part of a team that leads on music therapy research.

Overview

Music Therapy at Anglia Ruskin University research institute leads music therapy research for adults, older people, young people and children with a range of issues. We specialise in finding out what works clinically in music therapy and how it works, including which theoretical frameworks such as neurology, psychology, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis best inform the work.
