The Bachelor of Music degree programme is designed for music students seeking to train full-time to a professional level as performers (both classical and irish traditional), as instrumental or vocal teachers, as composers and musicologists.

The Bachelor of Arts in Drama (Performance) is a three-year, honours, full-time Degree programme focusing on actor training and the study of drama in performance and facilitation contexts. This programme is unique in Ireland in that it is the only acting-based Degree accessible through the Central Applications Office.
The M MUS (Performance) is a one-year full-time programme designed to prepare graduates for a performing career in the music profession. Based in the Conservatory of Music and Drama which has a long tradition in the provision of performing arts education, the programme aims to facilitate the artistic, intellectual and creative development of students by providing integrated, structured and performance experience in a wide range of solo and ensemble contexts, underpinned by complementary academic and supporting professional studies.
In addition to the MMus programme, the Conservatory offers prospective students the opportunity to complete research degrees at MPhil and PhD level. The scholarship of performance is regarded as an integral part of all research carried out in the Conservatory and consequently, there is a particular commitment to practice-based research. In this research, various strands such as performance and musicology, theory and practice and interpretation and analysis are brought together.
