Our History

 

Voice Study Centre facilitates the study of Voice Pedagogy (Vocal Pedagogy). 

Since our incorporation in 2017, we are rapidly building an international reputation as a provider of excellence, having already achieved high regard at a national level.

The Voice Study Centre arose to provide much-needed voice pedagogy education that could be undertaken flexibly by busy professionals with a passion for learning and development. We created the first voice pedagogy programme in the UK, enabling practitioners to explore and apply evidence-based research to their professional practice. Initially partnered with Cardiff Metropolitan University, we provided educational opportunities to forty-five dedicated practitioners who graduated successfully with a Postgraduate Certificate. The calibre of our graduates proved pivotal to our success and the University Of Wales Trinity St David celebrated our achievements by accrediting a master’s programme that allowed voice to be explored within a broad spectrum of professional spheres.

We currently have over two hundred and forty students on the programme, with a hundred and thirty-four graduates who have completed the course with a range of innovative projects, strategies, academic conferences and publications to their name. We've now expanded our provision, and will offer from this September a part-time two-year master's with the University of Essex.

We are honoured to be granted Associate College status with the University of Essex for the next stage of our growth strategy. The Voice Study Centre is firmly rooted within the locality of the county, and we are proud to partner with the Department of Language and Linguistics. Ranking 11th in the UK (QS World University Rankings by Subject 2023), we are looking forward to exploring the synergies between speech and song, communication, music, pedagogy, language and linguistics. The University holds an impressive international reputation, ranking globally in the top 500 universities and the top 100 in the European University Rankings. Our journey continues with Essex in 2025 when we will offer a full-time online MA.

Introduction to Postgraduate Academic Skills

This course is ideal for those seeking to bridge the gap between undergraduate and postgraduate study.
We will introduce you to the advanced academic skills required at Master's level, allowing you to build up your knowledge of academic reading, researching, referencing and writing as you proceed.

This course is a precursor to MA Voice Pedagogy, and on completion provides an alternate pathway on to our MA for those applicants that would otherwise be ineligible.
