We are excited to announce that we will be launching a brand new Foundation Year course later this year for those eager to kickstart their music career! The Foundation Year begins in September and is ideal for those interested in enrolling on our BA (Hons) degree programmes but do not yet meet the entry requirements. The course lasts a total of 9 months (split across three terms) and will cover everything from personal development for higher education, introductions to DJ techniques and DAWs like Ableton and Logic Pro to the foundations of sound design, music composition and much, much more.
When you enrol on the course you will gain access to our state-of-the-art studios as well as the fantastic discounts on hardware and software we have to offer. You will be entitled to a huge 50% off Ableton Live Suite and NI Komplete, 30% off NI Kontrol, Maschine MK2 and Maschine Studio as well as a special discount on Ableton’s game-changing Push 2 controller.
The Native Instruments-partnered music production studio
Our new Foundation Year is sure to open up a number of doors for students. It aims to build your confidence whilst providing the necessary skills required to progress onto one of our undergraduate degrees. If you are a UK or International student who is passionate about music but feel you are not ready for degree-level study or don’t meet the entry requirements for our degrees – this is the course for you. Additionally, if you are a mature student returning to study and need to get up to speed with the demands of learning before embarking on a degree, this programme is a solid way to brush up on your skills. See our list of pathway suggestions below.
