Oxford Tops Guardian University League Table for Music

The annual Guardian University League Tables have been published today, 16 May 2017. The Oxford Music Faculty is ranked No. 1 of all UK university departments and music colleges.

The Guardian newspaper compiles its annual tables on the basis of the performance of universities and individual subjects in such areas as entry standards, value-added performance, student satisfaction, student employability, and so on.

Do you want to be a part of this? Then come to one of our Open Days to find out more! These will be taking place this year on 28 & 29 June. They are aimed principally at students in Year 12 who are considering applying for a degree in Music. Don’t be afraid: just come along! You will be made warmly welcome.

Further information on the Music Faculty Open Days is available here.

If you are in line to get three A grades (or equivalent) at A-level (we don’t make an offer on the basis of A* grades), and you have a passion for and curiosity about music, then you really should be thinking about applying to us. You don’t even necessarily need to be studying A-level Music.

Last year we admitted around 70 students onto our undergraduate degree programme. They come from all sorts of backgrounds and from all corners of the UK, as well as from elsewhere in Europe and further afield. The majority of our undergraduates who joined us last October studied at UK state comprehensives, academies, sixth-form and tertiary colleges. They have a passion for classical music, jazz, world musics, popular musics. Some are performers, some are composers, some wish to concentrate exclusively on academic matters. Whatever their interests, they have the opportunity to explore them on our course.
