Study a music degree at Newcastle College

The flexible nature of our music Foundation Degree means that you’re able to study modules across a range of pathways including composition, DJ and electronic music, music production, performance and sound engineering or focus on one pathway depending on your area of interest. We also offer a BA (Hons) Creative Enterprise (Top-Up) degree which will enable you to build on your skills at Foundation Degree level.
