UAL Level
2 Music

What will I study?

This course focuses on practical activities, offering you the opportunity to study and develop skills in the processes involved in organising and being part of music performances, developing as an artist, music theory, composition and singing. You will be encouraged to learn additional instruments to your first study instrument and perform in College and at venues in Camden and across London.


Although the emphasis is on practical assignments, you will need to complete written assessments in the form of evaluative blogs and rehearsal diaries and contextual and business studies. Students must be able to perform. Many of your teachers are professional musicians, which gives the course a real work focus. During your course you will be engaging in activities aimed at giving you an insight into working in the industry.

What are the additional entry requirements for this course?

Four GCSEs at grade D or above or equivalent Level 1 qualification with Functional Skills in Maths and English at Level 1 and a good reference. You may need to do a short English and Maths test to gauge your level. You will need to demonstrate a keen interest in music and attend an interview and audition.

"I applied for the College’s Music course as I had heard that they had a strong music department with amazing equipment. This turned out to be true and whole lot more.


I feel like I can ask our teachers anything as they are so knowledgeable and approachable. My confidence has grown on this course and my life is already changing because of my experiences here. I can’t wait to see what my second year will bring!"
