The FD Popular Music Performance is tailored to provide you with opportunities to find your key creative strengths in the performance setting, in music business, research or education, and then develop your chosen specialism in order to progress into further study or employment. The FD Popular Music Performance offers students a practical, experience-based education in performance practices and creative music making. Wherever possible we encourage students to be working collaboratively with external clients, producing competitive products that meet the requirements of the music industry.
How is the course assessed?
Hull College Group
64 UCAS points, IELTS Score: 6.5 Although we use UCAS points as a guide for students coming straight from school or college, 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
In addition: Applicants are not necessarily expected to have formal qualifications, for example you may have had appropriate work experience.
