Scholarships still available for the MA in Sonic Arts in the School of Creative Arts, Queen's University Belfast
The MA in Sonic Arts is a one year full-time taught programme starting in September 2012 that covers multiple aspects of sound, creativity and technology. It takes advantage of the international cross-disciplinary team and the unique studio and performance facilities at the Sonic Arts Research Centre. The programme addresses the synergy between technology and creativity and prepares students with technical, critical and creative skills for future professional practice or further research in the areas of audio, music technology and new media. It is focused on links with research activities at the Sonic Arts Research Centre and provides students with unique opportunities to develop Masters level research in the context of larger research projects. A foundation in digital audio and Sonic Arts literature is offered in the first semester and students choose two out of five specialisms in the second semester to finish with a portfolio or dissertation over the summer.
The weekly seminar and concert series in the School and the PhD forum at SARC offer a stimulating and supportive research environment.
The School has made available eight bursaries valued at £3,400 each for MA programmes available in the School of Creative Arts. All current MA applicants and those who apply before the deadline of 27th April 2012 will be considered for these awards. Applicants are also encouraged to explore other funding opportunities including local funding bodies. The allocation of these awards will be decided in June 2012 in a process separate to the academic application to MA programmes in the School.
International applicants holding an unconditional offer can apply for scholarships payable towards tuition fees. The University Postgraduate Centre website has details on the different funding options available.
