Welcome to the School of the Arts: Music at the University of Pretoria, and on behalf of the staff I wish to thank you for showing an interest in our programmes.

Our vision is to:

  • be the academic locus in South Africa that produces the most distinguished postgraduate researchers, prolific creative talent and performing artists

  • become a leading jazz force in this country

  • provide access and opportunity across demographics to all talented students from all South African communities who strive to maintain standards of excellence for music at UP and thereby make a contribution.

I hope you take the time to explore the information on our website which will introduce you to our different degree options, scholarship programmes, events and distinguished staff members.
