And should the right opportunity present itself for a budding music professional like you, our tutors can offer the all-important industry connections to career-making opportunities.
Course structure & content
Whatever your discipline, our fully accredited degree courses are geared to gradually raise your knowledge and abilities up to a professional level. Each year offers a different range of modules, all structured to give you a well-rounded balance of practical and theoretical skills with performance placements and/or work experience opportunities included. Key modules include music business study, research methods and online music, each complementing an entrepreneurial mindset and all proven to help put you on a path to career success. Check out some of these in class videos for a taste of what to expect from each of our courses.
Each of our degree courses also feature a Professional Project module, which takes place in your third and final year and counts for a large percentage of your overall grade for that year. The brilliant thing about the Pro’ Project is that it’s very open-ended, meaning you have the freedom to undertake an in-depth study of whatever subject you wish. Not only does this give you a fantastic opportunity to indulge yourself in a project you’re passionate about; it’s also the perfect opportunity to launch your very own business venture.
Performance students may wish to organise a live tour, release a record or write own their teaching syllabus. Production students could set up their own recording studios, Music Business and Event Management students could start their own record label or publishing company, tour manage an artist, create their own club night or perhaps even run their own live music festival.
Whatever your passion, the Professional Project module will allow you to turn your own idea into a real-life business prospect with the potential to realise your career goals and help launch your life in music. Here are just a handful of Pro’ Project videos and student business profiles from our most recent final year degree students.
