Music is one of the UK’s biggest cultural exports. It’s worth an estimated £5.8 billion to the UK economy, and sustains almost 197,000 full-time jobs (Music by Numbers, UK Music, 2020). This degree will put you at the heart of music in the UK, with coursework designed to equip you with the skills, knowledge and experience not just to work in but to shape the music industries. While studying with us, you’ll have the opportunity to set up a record label, promote artists or organise a music event for a paying audience. You will develop practical business knowhow alongside critical and theoretical knowledge, applying your skills to a creative music enterprise project, as well as exploring music entrepreneurship, music online, music promotion and PR, music video, and television and music programming. Designing and working on real-world projects with clients will enable you to add professional jobs to your portfolio. You will also have opportunities for work placements with key organisations within the UK music industries and benefit from our membership of UK Music’s Music Academic Partnership, designed to maximise the employability of students. Foundation Year The foundation year is designed to give you the opportunity to develop your academic and interpersonal skills while developing your subject knowledge further to support you to success on your academic path. By studying a foundation year, your first year will be spent learning a wide range of broad subject areas which then open up opportunities for you to specialise further in your next year – which would be the first year of a full degree programme.
