MA Psychology for Musicians/MA Music Psychology in Education
Residentials, in which students come to Sheffield for four to five days onsite intensive teaching and discussion, are a vital part of the course. They are held annually, usually in the second half of August and students are also be invited to optional one day study events during the academic year. The residentials include lectures and seminars given by the course staff and visiting experts, together with discussion groups and tutorials that allow you to exchange ideas with staff and other students. Accommodation is available at competitive rates. Besides being integral to the teaching of the course, residentials serve an important purpose in allowing students to get to know each other and to discuss ideas in detail.
