Hull music graduates take up a wide variety of careers, among them freelance performing, conducting, orchestral playing, orchestral management, working for the BBC, music librarianship, publishing, retailing, lecturing, classroom and instrumental teaching, music therapy, cathedral music and instrument making. They are also welcomed by employers in such non-musical ﬁelds as the Civil Service, accountancy, insurance and computing.
Our graduates' success rate in ﬁnding suitable employment is very high, and prospects are higher still for those with the skills to work in the fast-paced theatre industry. Previous students have headlined some of the most prestigious stages in the world, such as the Royal Opera House, those of the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Bouffes du Nord in Paris. Others have established independent theatre companies, often using final-year production modules as a launch pad to success.
Your search for employment is greatly enhanced by our excellent Careers Service – one of the few that places no time limit on its services. It provides skills workshops, practice interviews, practice ability tests and extensive, up-to-date information, both during your degree and upon graduation.
