Students who have not achieved grade A-C/9-4 in English and Maths will be required to study the appropriate level as part of their main qualification. GCSEs in English and Maths are part of the core programme of study.
If you have less that grade C in GCSE English or Maths, you will also study that subject at college.
After 1 year, you can achieve a
UAL Diploma in Music Performance and Production.
This means that you can progress on to the Extended Diploma course (below).
After 2 years, you can achieve a UAL Extended Diploma in
Music Performance and Production.
This is equivalent to 3 A Levels. This means you
can apply for university level courses, including Northbrook's Music Business & Management degree, or seek work
