Students applying for any of the Resonance undergraduate degrees who show great potential in terms of musical skills and personal attitude, but do not have the required formal entry qualifications, can add a Foundation Year to make it a four-year degree programme. The Foundation Year gives you the opportunity to explore popular contemporary music performance and production at university level in preparation for the undergraduate programme.
Developing your employability is more than just having a good degree. During our research phase, employers told us that what they look for when recruiting staff or freelance contractors is a combination of ‘hard’ skills (music and product specific skills, knowledge and understanding) and ‘soft’ skills.
Students will also be encouraged to participate in our Quals Plus option (at additional cost and subject to availability). This involves further study (mostly at Cable Plaza if numbers allow) to gain additional qualifications awarded by external organisations such as RSL (London), PLASA, the Musicians’ Union and others.
Throughout the year, Resonance will be promoting a range of charitable and commercial courses, aimed at non-students and held mainly at weekends.
