The final assessment for Paper Composition will be played through either in the first week of the Spring Term or the third week of the Summer term. Attendance at workshops and seminars run in conjunction with the Department¿s link with Birmingham Contemporary Music Group is also required as they form an integral and quality aspect of the course.
