About

Music students are invited to join one of the thriving research groups at the University of Lincoln and participate in its Critical Encounters Research Series, alongside academic staff and peers.

Overview

The University of Lincoln offers Music research programmes at MPhil and PhD level in a range of music specialisms within an engaged team. Research students can benefit from a variety of training opportunities to develop their research skills.

Proposals are welcomed for research and practice-based PhDs. Proposals are welcomed in ethnomusicology, musicology, composition, music analysis, music practice, and musical theatre.

Research students are invited to join one of the School's thriving research groups and participate in its Critical Encounters Research Series alongside academic staff and other postgraduate students.

How You Are Assessed

Students are expected to write an 80,000 word thesis on a subject agreed with their proposed supervisor prior to admission to the College.

Students completing a practice-based PhD will be required to produce a substantial body of art and a thesis of between 25,000 to 40,000 words.

The thesis is examined by two examiners and includes a Viva Voce (oral) examination.

Programme Structure

How You Study
  • Due to the nature of postgraduate research programmes, the majority of time is spent in independent study and research. Students will have regular meetings with their academic supervisors, but the frequency of these will vary depending on individual requirements, subject area, staff availability, stage of programme, and whether the student is following a full-time or part-time programme.
  • You will receive a monthly 1-hour supervision with your supervisory team. These are arranged with the supervisors every month. Part-time students will receive supervisions every two months.
