Our Degree Courses

Our Bachelor (Hons) degrees are internationally recognised undergraduate bachelor of arts programmes, administered through the University of St Mark & St John. They’re suitable if have some prior experience in recording and/or production and aim to really push you both creatively and technically. You will go in-depth into each of the key areas, broadening your perspective and honing critical analysis skills to better understand and establish your own unique creative voice and style.

You can study our degrees as a standard three year course or as a fast-track two year course. Both delivery options contain exactly the same content, but the two year course also has an intensive summer semester each year.
