UK Music Courses

Introduction to Music

Studying Music in the UK will allow you to focus on a wide range of musical genres alongside theoretical and practical modules. Students will develop their creative, teamwork, communication and performance skills in seminars, lectures and practical sessions, while modules focus on specific periods of music and genres, composition, performance and collaborative practice. You will be able to customise your study plans and focus on what you are interested in after year one, and many teachers are industry professionals with years of musical experience.

The UK has a famous musical past with exports such as The Beatles, The Who and David Bowie famous all over the world and its cultural and diverse history makes it a great place to study for an international student.
