With over 380 students, the University of Huddersfield's Department of Music is the largest in the university sector. Its appeal for many students is that it occupies the middle ground between traditional university education and conservatoire training, and this is reflected across its wide range of courses.

The department has an international reputation for promoting contemporary music, through its direct association with the internationally renowned Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival. Other strengths include Brass Band Studies and Early Music Studies. It welcomes aspiring composers and electroacoustic musicians, but is equally suitable for would-be writers, critics or performers.

Performance is very much alive within the department, which offers many concert opportunities for both its undergraduate and postgraduate community.
