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.Created by professional musicians, this honours degree will help you to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence required by employers, and for self-employment, in the music industry. The BA (Hons) Popular Music degree at Perth College UHI is a highly rated and well-established music course that will equip you with the portfolio of skills and knowledge required for a successful career in today's music industries. On successful completion you will be able to enter areas of employment such as performing, composing, song-writing, instrumental teaching, music production and enter academic teaching and research through future postgraduate study. By learning from staff who are professional performers, composers and academics, you will be encouraged to thoroughly develop both your creative talents and your critical thinking in a positive, stimulating learning environment. You will benefit from excellent facilities, including music production workstations (Pro-Tools), band rehearsal rooms, a professional performance theatre and access to three acoustically designed Eastlake state-of-the-art recording studios.
