A music internship is aimed at you completing a specifically tailored project relevant to your studies and career aspirations and to the chosen host organisation.
The project should be conceived and planned by you in conjunction with the host organisation and Professor Tom Hajdu.
Students are selected on merit. Whilst there are no guarantees for a placement every effort is made to maximise the student's opportunities (first year students will need to have completed a full semester of study before undertaking a music internship). The process of placing students with Industry Partners is extremely competitive, so students are encouraged to have a 'back-up' plan in the event they are unsuccessful in gaining a placement.
The internship course requires 120 hours on placement to be completed. Assessment will be conducted via a reflective journal, a research assignment, and feedback from the host organisation.
