Making a postgraduate application: Explaining your short and longer term goals

Applications for our Postgraduate Awards are open until 7 March 2022. This article will help you with the part of the application asking you to explain your short and longer term goals.

In this section, we would like to know what your short-term plans are after graduation and what your longer-term ambitions are.

You should be realistic with your goals and offer back-up plans just in case you experience any obstacles that get in your way.

You should detail how you hope to reach these ambitions and the steps you need to take in order for you to achieve these. For example, if your career plan is to join an orchestra or opera company, what knowledge, repertoire, skills, experience do you need to have in order to gain a place/seat, and will you also take up some teaching work on the side?

Are you planning a portfolio career? If so, how do you hope to split your time? By this we mean having several streams of income at the same time such as combining performance work with teaching and setting up music workshops within your community for example.

Are your plans innovative or different? If so, what makes your career plans stand out?
