The Department of Music at City is offering two fee waivers for PhD studies commencing in September 2019 or January 2020. Enrolment can be on full-time or part-time basis.
While these fee waivers are open to all, we wish particularly to encourage applicants from under-represented groups at this level, or those considering doctoral studies who have taken non-traditional educational routes.
The Department combines world-leading research with exceptional teaching in performance, composition and musicology. We have one of the highest completion rates per member of staff of any music department in the UK.

What is Offered
These awards will provide a full tuition-fee waiver for UK and EU students for the duration of the programme. Applications from overseas applicants are welcome, but the applicant must make appropriate arrangements to cover the difference between the overseas and UK tuition fee.
As part of our commitment to doctoral student training, you will also be eligible for appointment as a Graduate Teaching Assistant and are likely to be offered teaching-related duties (to a maximum of 150 hours each year for full-time students). This work will be paid in full.
The studentships will be awarded on the basis of outstanding academic potential, and a record of achievement that evidences the capacity to successfully complete a programme of doctoral research.
- Applicants whose first language is not English must have achieved at least 7.0 in IELTS or a recognised equivalent
- Applicants must not be currently registered as a doctoral student at City, University of London, or any other academic institution
How to Apply
Applications must be made online using the link to the Music PhD programme page above, and with the materials requested on that page. Applicants are strongly advised to make contact with a potential supervisor prior to making an application.
Closing date: 23.59 on Monday 15th July 2019
