In recent years and at an additional expense, UCW music students have visited Abbey Road Studios, Monnow Valley Studio, Rockfield Studios, Modern World Studios and Sawmills Studio and also performed in Krakow, Poland.

UCW music students also benefit from a great guest lecture programme, which has included composers, studio owners, technicians, designers and representatives from important
industry organisations including the Musicians’ Union.

Students on this course are based at our recently-refurbished Loxton Campus. It has ample rehearsal and performance spaces, and we put on a programme of our own shows throughout the year.

Students are also able to take advantage of everything on offer at our new University Centre in the Winter Gardens in the centre of Weston.

You can meet the team and find out more about everything else going on at UCW by attending our next Open Day.

Please contact either the course leader Lee Sullivan or UCW’s HEART student services team for more information.
