    I got offers for Masters at:

    - University of Edinburgh, MSc Composition for Screen
    - Bristol, MA Composition for Film and TV
    - York, MA Music Production
    - Hertfordshire, MSc Music Composition for Film and Media
    - Oxford Brookes, MA Composition
    - West London, MMus Composition for Film and TV
    - Bath, MMus Composition
    - Goldsmiths, MMusc Composition
    - Bangor, MA Composing for Film/Sonic Art
    - Kent, MA Music Technology, MA Composition
    - Salford, MA Music Composition, MSc Audio Production
    - Bournemouth, MSc Digital Music and Audio Production
    - University of Derby, MA Music Production
    - Kingston, MMus Composing for Film and TV
    - Leeds Beckett, MA Music Production, MA Music for the Moving Image

    I know, I applied to a lot of uni!

    I'm in doubt with Salford and Kent which are the cheapest, or York and Edinburgh if I get a full scholarship.

    What do you guys think? There's any universities in this list that I should avoid?

    What kinda area are you hoping to specialise in? (Musicology/composition/ethnomusicology, etc.)

    I personally wouldn't go to West London but that's just me being a snob

    at West London they only have music for film/tv which I got into.
    The others are more traditional composition (Salford, Kent) and music technology too.
    I don't know if get into composition or music tech/production. I want to pursue a PhD afterwards and I was wondering which is better for employability

    You might wanna look and see if PhDs in music tech/production are actually a thing. I've never heard of anyone doing one, but that could just be ignorance on my part There are def PhDs in composition though.

    That's a shame they don't have music production at West London - I would have thought they would have it

    Yep.
    I just edit my previous post. Now I listed the subjects.
    Yes, there are PhD in Music Technology and some more towards Acoustics.
    I'm not sure if going to London, that's too expensive, also because of the living cost. It's true that you can have a bigger network but if you spend a lot of time studying it's going to be difficult to socialize

    I think the contacts thing can be very important though, with music production. If you're more geared towards composition for music of the moving image or whatever, it's less important.

    I wouldn't go for Goldsmiths as that's more traditional contemporary Western art music composition, to my knowledge...

    Music tech/production? Is this more around electronic music production or?

    I may be biased but I was really happy at Bangor when I did my undergrad music - the staff are so friendly, and will do all they can to help you succeed. I don't have much clue on the Music Tech side, as I did classical and Welsh Music, but I heard some music tech stuff and saw the studios, and it sounded and looked good Good luck!
