With the opening of the Bramall music building in September 2012, the University has embarked on an exciting musical journey. The 450-seat auditorium is the most flexible performance space at a UK university - suitable for performances from solo voice, early music, to a full symphony orchestra. When not used for music, it is a high profile location for drama and dance performance and for prestigious lectures.

Professor Andrew Kirkman, Head of Music  "The Bramall Music Building is a fantastic shot in th arm for our music programmes, which are rapidly going from strength to strength. It provides us with a platform to build a fine music department into one of the world's best: we are very excited about what the future holds."

The 16 million pound investment will continue to attract and train the most talented students- nurturing them as they go on to make an important contribution to composition and performance of music in the UK and worldwide.

The University offers a number of scholarships in Music, each worth £1,000 per year to students who plan to start their studies at Birmingham in 2014-15. The scholarships are available to any academic subject (however you must not be studying a programme offered by the Department of Music).

The awards are open to home undergraduate students only and will be tenable for three years, subject to satisfactory academic progression at 2:1 standard.
