All of our music courses have been designed by industry experts and our students have the opportunity to work with professional musicians, recording artists and composers.
There are 68,600 people employed in the creative industry in Scotland.

“ Regionally, the university is in an ideal position to provide skills training to people wanting a career in music, taking them from the dream to reality in order to prepare them for an exciting and glamorous but hard working industry. We were able to create, in collaboration with the university, a placement programme that expose students to a variety of aspects of the business providing valuable real world experience to back up the readiness provided by the university in the classroom."
With locations spread across the Highlands and Islands, students can choose the university campus that suits. It might be close to home, or offer a course of interest, or there might be something special about a specific location. Students can also choose to create their own campus by studying online, when and where it suits them.
In 2015, 95% of the university’s graduates, who studied with us on a full time basis, entered work or further study (Destination of Leavers from Higher Education survey).
