BA (Hons) Music Production University Level / Full Time

Our BA (Hons) Music Production pathway offers an education in production, research and aural analysis to enable you to compete in the music industry. The programme is tailored to provide you with opportunities to find your key strengths, such as composition, production, music business, research or education, and then develop your chosen specialism to meet the industry expectations.

The programme offers opportunities for nurturing skills in studio recording and sequencing in popular and experimental music. Whether you’re an aspiring song writer, beat maker, DJ producer, composer for film, sound designer, or live sound engineer, we offer training in all these areas. You will be expected to develop as an individual practitioner, to explore and collaborate on different projects.

Music Production graduates pursue careers in technology and production-related industries, and many establish their employability through vocational module projects. It is possible to secure jobs in the music industry whilst still studying at Hull College through the creation of working portfolios and commercial experience. Final year students may be offered the opportunity to participate in our annual visit to Memphis, Tennessee, to mentor at the Stax Music Academy as well as take in the historical sites of the birthplace of Rock’n’Roll, Soul and Jazz.

Entry Requirements

96 UCAS points

Although we use UCAS points as a guide for students coming straight from school or college, entry to all our programmes is by interview (and portfolio/audition for programmes in the Faculty of Arts), together with evidence of academic achievement and/or relevant professional attainment. So please contact us to discuss your individual situation as we actively welcome students from a wide range of educational backgrounds. For us, what you’ve achieved in the past isn’t nearly as important as what we believe you can achieve in the future and we excel at providing the support that helps students succeed, regardless of their previous academic background.
