The three Graduate Awards offered at AIM are nested within the Graduate Studies program.

AIM Graduate Music Awards: 

• Graduate Certificate in Music (Grad Cert Mus) - one semester
• Graduate Diploma of Music (Grad Dip Mus) - two semesters
• Master of Music (MMus) - four semesters

The Master of Music (MMus) is awarded after the completion of four semesters of study. Entry into the MMus program is determined though an interview process and/or transition through the GCMus and GDMus stages.

Major Studies

This unit develops an individual student’s creative practice supported by a strong research foundation. Individual supervision leads to a final performance, folio and/or recording. An elective choice supports the Major Study in the first two semesters, replaced by extra individual supervision in the final two semesters. A plan to provide support for Major Study objectives will be individually tailored to suit the student’s goals.


This unit exposes graduate students to the inter-disciplinary musical environment at AIM where each student presents their work to their peers for discussion and feedback, along with regular discussions about the relationships between academic research and creative practice.

Research Project

This unit is a music research project related to the student’s creative practice that develops research methods, critical thinking and academic (written) communication skills.
