Industry Professionals can now Fast-Track to the final year of a BA, gaining an Honours degree in just 12 months!

We know all too well that for many aspiring musicians, time is precious, and juggling your musical aspirations with life’s other responsibilities can be a big challenge. With that in mind, we have extended our fast-track programme – musicians working within the industry can now Fast-Track to to the final year of a BA (Hons) programme without needing a Foundation Degree or HND. Experience in the industry is enough.

Through our unique Fast Track process, we save you time by rewarding you for your hard work and experiences by mapping these against the earlier years of a BA (Hons) programme. This way, you can achieve a BA (Hons) degree in as little as 2 Semesters full time or 3 Semesters part time, without the need for formal prior qualifications.

You may have extensive experience as a performer, song writer, producer, publisher, tour manager, artist representation, audio engineer, festival organiser, business owner, composer or private teacher, and all of that experience can count towards your fast tracking.

For those interested in developing a career in formal teaching, achieving a BA(Hons) is a must have step in gaining a post graduate certificate of education.  Having an honours degree could also help you progress much more quickly to M.Mus level, which you may need for a variety of careers in the industry such as Music Therapy.

If you’ve been working predominantly in music for 5 years or more, and you can prove this by submitting a portfolio of musical links and back it up with references, then you could be eligible to fast track straight onto the final year of our BA (Hons) Music & Sound

This top up course is delivered at all our centres in the UK, and is also available online for distanced learners.

To find out if you’re eligible complete our application form and we’ll get back to you.
