We run a programme of research seminars, classes and workshops with key contributions from eminent visiting scholars and musical practitioners. Music research training covers general training in music research and topics specific to musicological, music educational, and practice-based research and MPhil and PhD students are advised to participate in these modules where appropriate.
In addition, our Humanities and Social Sciences Graduate School organises a comprehensive training programme for postgraduate students that covers research techniques, professional/key skills and provides support for personal development.
