Hear from our students


Connor Hudson

Bachelor of Music (Popular Music)

"I have played music since I was a child. I chose to do the Pop Music course to better my musicianship, songwriting, production and also to collaborate and network with people who share the same passions and interests. The facilities available at The University of Adelaide are extremely valuable and helpful for my degree. We get 24/7 access to multiple studios and rehearsal and recording spaces. We get to work with lecturers and musicians that have excellent experience within the music industry. The knowledge I’ve gained from this degree is incredibly valuable."


Gianna Guttilla

Bachelor of Music (Classical Voice)

"Prior to starting my second year of study, I was fortunate enough to have been selected to attend a study tour to London. Whilst on this study tour, we attended masterclasses and performances at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, the Royal Academy of Music, the Royal College of Music and the Trinity Laban Conservatoire. From partaking in this study tour, I have a different and exciting perspective on the opportunities available to me, and I came back to Adelaide with a stronger sense of motivation and determination to continue my studies."
