University of Central Lancashire
Do you enjoy creating original music? Our degree is a hands-on course which teaches you contemporary, new, experimental and fusion music forms, without relying on the approaches of traditional music education. It�s not just preparing people to be a recording artist; it is about preparing graduates for a range of careers: making music for audiences such as film, TV and video games, in addition to live music and professional recording. You will get to work on live projects from year 1, and be encouraged to perform your own gigs and shows at various venues, and will also study relevant aspects of the music business such as strategies for marketing and working under commission.
Applicants must demonstrate achievement of any 1 of the following: receipt of a 2.2 degree, or higher from a British university; a high level of achievement in undergraduate studies at a university elsewhere (e.g. for North American students a minimum overall GPA of 3.3 on a 4.0 scale); professional experience in the field or a related field in their home country.
