Many of our students are now working in music – find out more on our alumni page. There are countless career opportunities for musicians including performing, writing and recording music, releasing music on streaming platforms, gaining a social media following, teaching, or indeed a combination of various paths to forge a multi-faceted income base. During your time with us, besides industry networking, you will gain transferable skills like communication, personal development and teamwork. You will be able to progress to study and completely a HND in Music, after the first year HNC.
During COVID, we have also introduced the option to Fast-Track through our HNC in just 7 months with our new scheme. Students who start in January 2021 will be qualified and have a whole host experience under their belt by the start of August 2021. Find out more.

So many of us have lost out on gigs and opportunities this year, and while things are difficult, a music qualification might just be the edge you need. Those after something a little different from a music qualification look no further than our fast-track HNC scheme. The partially SAAS funded HNC in Music (at Edinburgh only) is specifically designed to help musicians get ahead and give them an edge in a competitive industry, and could be the perfect opportunity for those musicians feeling a little lost this year.
Through our Fast-Track scheme you can get a qualification in just 7 months, fast-tracking your way to the start of a HND starting in Autumn 2021 – your ticket to getting a full degree in just one third of the time. With the sector facing some of its biggest ever challenges, this might just be the ideal time to expand your skill set, and develop your expertise. Because if not now… When?
