Please note, due to restrictions placed on students with a Student route visa undertaking part-time study by the UKVI, courses requiring a placement cannot be studied by International students. We’re currently reviewing entry requirements based on this and they may be subject to some small changes. However, if you don’t quite get the grades you hoped, we’ll also look at more than your qualifications like your achievements in other areas and your personal statement. Our support services will be delivered online and on campus and you have access to a range of different resources so you can get the help you need, whether you’re studying at home or have the opportunity to come to campus. While you’re learning, you’ll be matched with a Personal Tutor directly related to your course.

Students will be required to devise a short, original composition for a live performer with technology. A series of lectures will introduce students to various compositional models, contemporary compositional theories will be explored in relation to key works and scholarly texts and workshops will develop the students’ technical skills. Work-in-progress will be performed during the module, and students will be encouraged to engage in peer evaluation and criticism. A final performance of all works will take place towards the end of the module.

Tutorials will give you the opportunity for detailed discussion and guidance. You’ll learn through a blend of lectures, workshops and access to key texts and materials that introduce new theories, ideas, tasks and research. You’ll look at the use and exploitation of intellectual property in the digital age, from the live sector to synchronisation.

Students will be taught the essential skills required for writing magazine, newspaper and online journalistic articles within a musical context. This can include reviews, artist biographies and celebrity culture features. They will be introduced to the disciplines of public relations including online and social media strategies. This is essential for launching, developing and maintaining artist careers. Press and media publicity campaigns will be explored and students will evaluate the effectiveness of PR within the marketing mix. In your final year, you’ll learn about contracts and intellectual property from specialist music and entertainment lawyers, MBA graduates and business mentors.

The module aims to stimulate development of students’ ability to relate theoretical material taught in the class to real world practice. It constitutes a useful and appropriate preparation for the final year dissertation or consultancy project. This module is concerned with the critical evaluation of music marketing and the technologies which drive it and explores underlying theories, concepts and current best practice. You’ll investigate a range of contemporary issues in the management of organisations, and will develop techniques for devising solutions to situations faced by modern groups and businesses. You’ll also gain an awareness of the macro, meso and micro situational factors that can affect the effectiveness of managers and their organisations. In this innovative module, you’ll analyse the impact of digital media technologies on consumers, creators, distributors, publishers, brands and platforms.

This module includes mapping and evaluation of current sources, routes and methods to financing creative projects. This course is designed to offer opportunities and benefits not only to applicants interested in a career in the business areas, but also to creatives and practitioners, who create and produce music and may be interested in self-management and distribution. We believe in learning through doing, which is why our course is made up of many practical modules that are completed to industry standards. This is supported with a solid academic base to help you learn the theory behind the work and reflect upon it. Previously, students have used the Major Project as a springboard into industry, creating award winning projects, establishing their own businesses or making connections with industry professionals that have led to employment. During your final trimester you will work to the completion of your final Major Project, which will have been designed, scoped and approved through the preceding term.

This module will take a critical perspective, illuminating to students not only the ways ‘good’ people management can contribute to performance and employee well-being but also the potential problems implementing this in practice. This Professional Practice module will enhance the students’ understanding of what it means to be a business professional within Events and in the Music industry. This module will support the preparation for their future career by encouraging them to develop, put into practice and evidence the skills and behaviours that employers want to see. In this module, students will be exposed to a variety of song-writing techniques and will develop and nurture the wide-ranging skill set necessary to succeed in the current music industry.
