Course summary

If you have a Foundation degree or HND in any area of music production, then we offer the opportunity to top up your qualification to a full BA (Hons) undergraduate degree with one further year of study. Our Top Up Year pathway provides an excellent opportunity to turn your Foundation degree or HND into a full BA (Hons) undergraduate degree in Music Production and Sound Engineering. If you’ve enjoyed learning the foundations of music production and music technology, this Top Up Year allows you to focus in on the area you are most interested in and develop those skills and knowledge to a professional level.
