Dr Chris Collins

Head of School and Director of University Music at Bangor University

NAMHE committee portfolio:

  • Vice-Chair
  • HE Learning & Teaching Sub Committee
  • Infrastructure & External Relations Sub Committee
  • Pre-HE Sub Committee
  • Student Experience Sub Committee


"Since joining the NAMHE committee in 2014, I have contributed to the Association‘s work supporting institutions wishing to apply for the ECU‘s Gender Equality Mark, and I have represented the Association in discussions with the Department for Education, Ofqual and exam boards about the reformed GCSE and A Level Music qualifications.

"As Head of Music at Bangor University, I have wide experience of HE management and bring a specifically Welsh perspective. I am committed to HE Music as a broad discipline, encompassing creative, scholarly and applied activity. My own professional activity as a musicologist and performer integrates these activities.

"My priorities are to promote the cultural and social values of music, to enhance the experience and employability of music students, and to widen access to the study of music at all levels."
