Course summary

The Foundation Year in Performing Arts is offered as an entry route to a dance, music or theatre degree for students who don't yet meet the entry requirements for degree-level study. You will enrol on a four-year course which includes the one-year foundation year. The number of students who progress to degree study is very high. The Foundation Year in Performing Arts is taught in our excellent studios and facilities at our Hendon campus by the same lecturing staff who teach on our degree courses. You are taught in small group seminars, workshops and lectures.

Overview

Our music business course is designed to give you the tools to succeed in the field of music business and arts management. It covers everything from entrepreneurship and project management to live music, copyright law and everything in between.

As part of our vibrant performing arts department, you’ll study a mix of compulsory and elective modules that will allow you to gain expertise in music and arts management.

You’ll get plenty of support from staff that are working or researching in the music business or arts sector. Guest lectures with industry professionals will put you in touch with the professional world and help to build contacts.

Heavily focused on enhancing your employability skills, you’ll follow in the footsteps of former students who have secured internships and placements with the likes of NME, Bath International Music Festival, EMI and the Barbican.

Course content

The BA Music Business and Arts Management degree combines a rich selection of areas over its three years of studies. Modules such as Managing Arts Projects, Introduction the Music Industries, and Music Contracts & Copyrights help lay the foundations, while more specialised aspects of the course develop the knowledge and skills you'll need to deal with the business and legal implications of the music and arts industries.

Careers

Once you graduate, you will leave fully equipped with the music business and management skills needed to secure employment in this vibrant sector. Event management, arts administration, the record industry or artist development are just some of the areas you might expect to work in. Opportunities in venue management, arts outreach, and education are other thriving areas, as demonstrated by the success of our graduates in recent years, who have been recruited by the likes of MTV, Help Musicians UK, Universal, PRS for Music, Columbia Records, and PPL, among other organisations.

Similarly, our students have secured, and continue to secure, internships and placements with the likes of the NME, Bath International Music Festival, Sound Diplomacy, HarrisonParrott, EMI, Royal Bank of Scotland, and the Barbican.

The field trips, practical work embedded modules, our Concerts & Colloquia series, and a Professional Development Tutorial scheme also actively support both your scholarly development and your collaboration with industry, supporting your ambitions and preparing you for your career.
