We’re a community of over 400 students and staff, working together in a supportive environment to explore, experience, think about, apply and create all that Music and Performing Arts has to offer.

Our courses offer a distinctive integration of practice and theory. We’ll encourage you to be critically engaged and intellectually curious about your chosen area, and to create new and challenging compositions, performances and productions. Our modules are carefully designed to be innovative and up-to-date, and are taught by first-class, research-active staff members recognised nationally and internationally as experts in their field.

All our students, staff, visiting artists and technicians work closely together on collaborative projects in a supportive and friendly environment. On completing your degree, you’ll be prepared for many careers within the creative industries and beyond. We look forward to welcoming you into our growing family of Music and Performing Arts alumni at Anglia Ruskin.
