We’re proud of our community of musicians and creative artists and you’ll be encouraged to collaborate with other courses to deliver an industry-like experience, such as concerts and gigs.

You can expect to study:
- Creativity and Composition
- Live Sound/Performance

As part of your assessment, you will undertake projects and performances that will allow you to utilise the various skills acquired throughout the course. The Extended Diploma is equivalent to three A Levels.
It is a complete programme and is therefore not taken with any other course. Having an understanding and interest in different types of music performance and production will benefit you personally and professionally.
The UAL Level 3 Extended Diploma in Music Performance and Production is a two year qualification equivalent to three A Levels. It has been designed to provide students with the knowledge, skills and understanding necessary to progress to further study and training in a range of music performance and production disciplines.
