Learn about the Schools research strengths and interests.

The Cardiff School of Music is an ambitious centre dedicated to research, composition and performance. We are an internationally recognised centre of excellence in research and teaching across a range of subject areas such as historical studies, popular culture, ethnomusicology, performance and performance practice, composition, analysis, music of the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, or British, French and Central European music.

Our reputation for excellence was recognised in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF). The School now ranks 8th in the UK amongst music departments for research excellence. Significantly, the School scored 90% in the category “research environment” – an esteem indicator of scholarly standing that measures how conducive the environment is to producing research of world-leading quality in terms of its vitality and sustainability. This is more than double the sector average. Just as significantly, 85% of the School's research has been judged to be either "world-leading" or "internationally excellent."

The School's aim is simple: to provide a stimulating and supportive environment where students and staff can flourish and work together in a wide range of musical scholarship, composition and performance. Research students in the School have the opportunity to work with and learn from world class scholars; and to work alongside students from across the world.
