Music

What is special about being a Music undergraduate at New College? We admit 4 to 5 students a year, creating a lively cohort of musicians in the College; we have two Music tutors, allowing us to cover a wide range of tutorial needs from within the College; we occupy a large and handsome piece of real estate in the middle of Oxford, with a magnificent chapel also serving as a concert venue; New College Choir provides an unbeatable educational and artistic experience for singers; New Chamber Opera extends this into the sphere of music drama; the student chamber groups and College orchestra cater for instrumentalists at a high level; the College library has possibly the most extensive collection of Music-related literature in Oxford apart from the Bodleian and Music Faculty; the Bodleian is literally across the road; the Music facilities in the College are just about to be extended into a suite of practice rooms. Other than this, New College is just like any other college.

We also offer Choral and Organ Scholarships and Instrumental Awards.
