In 1994 the University of St Andrews established the Scottish Certificate in Jazz and followed this in 1995 with the Advanced Diploma. In response to numerous enquiries from former students, the Graduate Diploma in Jazz was launched in 2009. The certificate and diplomas are aimed at professional, semi-professional and aspiring musicians. The courses run throughout the academic year and consist of study days, contact days and a final study weekend in St Andrews, combined with distance learning.
The courses are held in the Music School within St Leonards School in St Andrews. Designed by Robert Steedman, the award-winning architect, this is a marvellous facility and we are delighted to be using it for the jazz certificate and diplomas. The Auditorium has excellent acoustics and a new Bosendorfer grand piano.
The University of St Andrews offers three part-time courses in jazz.
Scottish Certificate in Jazz
Advanced Diploma in Jazz
Graduate Diploma in Jazz
The cost of each course is £600. This is payable in three instalments: £100 upon registration, followed by £225 on each of the first two study days.
