There is a deep historic affinity between the disciplines of Mathematics and Music. Both involve patterns and structures; and notions such as octaves, chords, scales, and keys are all based in mathematics. Music at Birmingham has evolved throughout the past century to give you unparalleled facilities, opportunities and student experience - blending tradition with fearless exploration of contemporary developments. You will benefit from some of the best facilities for undergraduate music study and practice in the country, including our state-of-the-art Bramall Music Building and the Barber Institute of Fine Arts, with its magnificent Art Deco concert hall. This student experience is complemented by a diverse and eclectic array of music venues in the city of Birmingham, and music-making opportunities in abundance through our active Music Society, the university's largest and oldest society. Meanwhile, your undergraduate Mathematics studies are carefully designed to give you access to as many topics as possible.
