Research Students

Our Research students are able to enjoy all the stimulus and opportunities of being fully involved not only with the RNCM, but also the thriving research culture of neighbouring universities in the North West, with whom we have lively collaborative partnerships.

The RNCM enrolled its first student on the new Postgraduate Research Degrees Programme (MPhil / PhD) in 2009. Since then nine doctoral candidates have graduated.

There are currently (2017-18) 33 research students from all over the world, embarked on a wide variety of projects right across the field of music, including in composition, performance, historical musicology, music psychology, music and spiritualism, and education.

The programme is run in collaboration with Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU).
