  • Course description
    A Master by Research degree which allows students to further extend their practical and theoretical performance knowledge and skills.

    Successful completion of all courses in the School demands self-discipline, commitment and perseverance, all of which relate to a positive attitude towards the study program. Attendance is one factor taken into consideration for assessment and a minimum attendance rate of 80% is a hurdle requirement for all students. More than 20% of classes missed is deemed as a non-pass. Where extenuating circumstances cause attendance to fall below the requirements, this may constitute grounds for Special Consideration for which a formal application can be made.

    To this end, attendance at all classes, scheduled rehearsals and performances is regarded as essential and students are obliged to have a clear understanding of the School’s policy regarding attendance.

    • Students are expected to attend and participate in all classes.
    • Absence due to illness in excess of two days requires a medical certificate, which must be submitted to the Student Administrator.
    • Absence for any reason including illness must be reported in advance where possible to the VCA and Music Student Centre.
    • The request for absence in excess of one day must be submitted to the Head of School in writing and include the reasons for the request.


    The course is two years full-time with part-time options available (normally 3 years part-time).
