Course enquiry form
Upon completion of the course, students will achieve the internationally recognised and highly regarded UAL Level 2 Diploma in Music Performance and Production – following a specialised Music Production pathway.
The UAL Level 2 Award in Music Production has been developed to provide learners with an understanding of music production as a collaborative activity and prepare them for the reality of the sector and the paths available to them.
The qualification has been designed for learners who have an interest in music production and wish to explore and extend this interest via a full-time, immersive learning experience.
It has been designed to incorporate a strong element of vocational learning to provide learners with the understanding, knowledge and skills identified as necessary for future progression and employment, underpinned by the broad transferrable skills that will enable learners to demonstrate qualities of adaptability, self-reliance, collaboration, dependability, imagination and creativity.
The structure of the qualification allows learners to develop practical skills and theoretical understanding and, through a process of reiteration and reinforcement, develop effective working practices that will provide support for creativity across a range of stimulating and increasingly demanding activities.
The final unit will require the learner to demonstrate the ability to use their skills, knowledge and understanding to successfully complete a collaborative assignment that requires greater self-direction in preparation for study at a more advanced educational level.
