Postgraduate Programmes 
in Performance, Composition, Music Education and Musicology

TU Dublin Conservatoire has a long tradition in the provision of performing arts education and artistic research, and its postgraduate programmes foster artistic, intellectual and creative development in performance, composition, pedagogy and musicology.

The Conservatoire is home to The Research Foundation for Music in Irelandwhich promotes the dynamic musical life of Ireland. Given the centrality of music to Ireland’s culture, the Research Foundation advances the study and performance of music in Ireland to national and international audiences, to the scholarly community and to the music industry.

Students also benefit from being part of TU Dublin’s large research community through the Graduate Research School and collaborate with fellow artistic researchers at GradCAM: Graduate School for the Creative Arts and Media. 


Each student follows an individual practice-based artistic and research path, mentored by distinguished lecturers. The programmes are designed to ensure that graduates are well suited for careers in music performance, composition, music education, creative and cultural industries, as well as in academia and research.
