    1. As regards the Music BMus course is there any support in the CLASSICAL (or even film) music composition. Because in any case I would not like to participate in a course that empasises popular music. Also is the birmingham conservatoire seperate from the university?Do I have to apply for the conservatoire or the univeristy?Which one is better for classical music composition?

    Hi there!

    If you wanted to study classical composition with us, you can specialise in Composition as part of our BMus (Hons) Music course. You would have opportunity to study both contemporary and 20th Century music, but with a focus on your preference as you often get to choose two specialisms within the modules studied. For more information on the modules you can study, take a look at the course page linked to above.

    Birmingham Conservatoire is part of the wider University, but on it's own campus. It therefore has benefits of a Conservatoire level of training but you still have access to all of the universities facilities and next year we'll be moving to a brand new Conservatoire on our City Centre Campus.

    Application for this course is to Birmingham Conservatoire through CUKAS which can also be found on the course page.

    I hope this information has helped, but don't hesitate to ask if you have any further questions!

    Best,

    Lydia (BCU Team)

    There are closed groups on facebook such as this one which should be first year students: https://www.facebook.com/groups/4252...05580/?fref=ts You'll have to request to join but I'm sure they'd be happy to answer any questions you may have. But I'd also suggest coming to an Open Day to meet staff, tutors and current students and find out about their experiences. Birmingham Conservatoire's next open day is Thursday 15 June.

    Best,
