Music and Health

Music can be used as therapy and in care situations. As a student in this programme, you might carry out your practical placement in prison, a reception centre for asylum seekers or a hospital.

Further education in Music and Health is suitable for health workers with a knowledge of music and musicians who want to work in care services. Music therapists work with schools, nurseries, psychiatry, substance abuse treatment, nursing homes and correctional services. Music therapy is a rapidly expanding field.

Completing the programme can qualify you for admission to a Master’s programme in music therapy if you fulfil the subject combination requirements. The programme can also be included as part of a Bachelor’s degree.
