Buckinghamshire New University has been delivering degrees in the music industry since 1995, and consequently has a vast wealth of expertise from within its network of lecturing staff, guest speakers, and alumni, all with a track record of success in a wide variety of roles in the music business internationally.
With well-equipped recording studios and two live venues, Buckinghamshire New University provides students with the opportunity to practise what they learn, both on-campus and off.
