Kaitlin O’Brien |   Final Year Music Student 2022-2023

Now having completed my studies in Music in University of Galway, my knowledge of music theory and music practice, along with various other areas, has grown vastly. With such an array of subject areas, I have been able to explore many avenues, resulting in a well-rounded degree. During this degree, students are given the opportunity to develop their skills not only academically, but also creatively, as there are so many opportunities to work on their talents as musicians. As I have also been a class representative numerous times throughout the course of the degree, I have also gained many communication tools to liaise with both students and staff.

“Studying in the BA Music course in University of Galway has not only enriched my music knowledge, but it has also introduced me to like-minded people who have become great friends throughout our four years of study. The course’s wide range of modules opened my eyes to areas of music I had not thought about or encountered before studying in University. As I am now at the end of the degree, I have come to realise that some of these specific modules I was introduced to through the BA Music have hugely influenced where I aspire to go with my music career.
