Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly on to their chosen Honours degree programme. Do you enjoy creating original music? Our Music degree is a hands-on course which teaches you contemporary, new, experimental and fusion music forms, without relying on the approaches of traditional music education. It’s not just preparing people to be a recording artist; it is about preparing graduates for a range of careers: making music for audiences such as film, TV and video games, in addition to live music and professional recording. You will get to work on live projects from Year 1, and be encouraged to perform your own gigs and shows at various venues, and will also study relevant aspects of the music business such as strategies for marketing and working under commission.
Our typical offer is 72 UCAS Points. We operate a flexible admissions policy and treat everyone as an individual. This means that we will take into consideration your educational achievements and predicted grades (where applicable) together with your application as a whole, including work experience and personal statement.

For changes to 2017 UCAS tariff entry requirements please see our important information. UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.
