Course summary

This degree builds on the industry-recognised HNC. All first year entrants will start on the HNC and the entry requirements are therefore for this programme. Successful completion will allow you to progress onto the second year of the degree. Applicants already holding a relevant HNC qualification can apply for direct entry to the second year. When completing your application make sure you choose year two. It may be possible for applicants holding a relevant HND qualification to apply for direct entry to year three, again where this is the case please make sure you choose year three when completing your application.This dynamic honours degree will provide you with the experience and knowledge to gain a career in the music business. You will benefit from real opportunities, experienced and dedicated staff and strong industry links. Studying at one of the best equipped facilities in Scotland you will be prepared for working in various sectors of the music industry. Alongside your studies, you will have the opportunity to gain experience working in event or festival management, music conference management, digital marketing, and with record labels and arts organisations. Placement and employment opportunities are regularly offered and you will be encouraged to attend industry events. Previous students have had work placements in the UK, Europe and the USA and have attended industry events such as SXSW (USA), Eurosonic (Netherlands), BIME (Spain), Reeperbahn Festival (Germany), and Tallinn Music Week (Estonia). In year three of the course, you can apply to study abroad on an Erasmus exchange. The teaching team, based at Perth College UHI, are all active in their disciplines and, as a result, have strong links with current employers in the music industry within the UK and further afield. These links enhance the educational experience, and provide a valuable insight into the contemporary music industries. You will also benefit from a guest speaker programme that has previously included Keith Harris (Stevie Wonder’s manager), Universal Music, Columbia Records, BBC Radio 1, Frightened Rabbit, Idlewild, Creative Scotland and the Scottish Music Industry Association.
