The Department of Music has recently been ranked tenth in the United Kingdom in The Guardian University Guide 2021, a huge rise for the department and making it the second highest placed music department in Scotland.
The league table accomplishment follows on from similar success earlier this year in the Good University Guide and a very positive outcome in the recent National Student Survey (NSS). In the past five years the department has steadily climbed the rankings to become one of the leading places to study music in the country. Head of Music Dr Phillip Cooke commented recently on this achievement: ‘we are all thrilled at this news which highlights all the efforts that staff have put into making the department the success it is. We have some amazing students, some great facilities and an enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff body that have all come together to create a really welcoming and inclusive place to study music to the very highest level. We look forward to carrying on this success in 2020-21 and for a long time to come!’.
