Our music graduates perform well in the jobs market, taking up a wide variety of careers from conducting, orchestral playing, orchestral management, working for the BBC, music librarianship, publishing, retail, lecturing, classroom and instrumental teaching, music therapy, cathedral music and instrument-making.
Music graduates are also welcomed by employers in non-musical ﬁelds, such as the Civil Service, accountancy, insurance and computing. Our graduates’ success rate in ﬁnding suitable employment is very high; in fact, the Higher Education Statistics Agency's report, published in 2015, showed that 95% of full-time students obtaining a degree from the University of Hull find employment or progress to further study within six months of finishing their course..
