The Music Business course is designed for both aspiring music business people and music makers alike, in fact anyone who wants to make money from music. It is ideal for people who want to make the jump from amateur to professional, or for those looking to take existing professional activities to the next level and beyond.
Brilliant ideas and good decisions come from a solid platform of knowledge. There is no point in having a great idea and a plan without the skills to back it up; and if you don’t have a plan – well, you need to make one.
Is this course right for me?
There is such a large and varied scope of people that study our Music Business course.

I am an international student. Can I apply?
Students from within the European Union, or who have joint nationality with the UK can enrol via the normal way, by clicking ‘Enrol Now’ on their chosen course.
However, if you are an international student from outside the EU:
We cannot provide you with a Tier 4 Licence. Do please still contact us so we can notify you when this is in place.
You can however apply for a Short Term Study Visa to enable you to study for up to 6 months with us in the UK. Our course advisors can look at the timetable so that a longer course can be condensed into a 6 month period for you to still receive the full training in a shorter time period.
And, if you are here on a short trip, you can study one of our shorter courses.
I work full-time. Is it possible for me to take this course?
Yes, many students successfully study this course whilst working full-time hours.
Your study comprises 3hrs of weekly lectures (fixed time every week), so as long as the lecture time doesn’t clash with your other commitments it is totally possible to study this course alongside full-time work.
If you have any questions please contact a course advisor on +44 (0)161 833 4722.
Do you provide student accommodation?
Student accommodation is not provided with the course.
Please see our accommodation page which has detailed information on both student halls, and private renting in and around Manchester.
It is advised that if you are moving to Manchester from abroad or a different city, the atmosphere of student halls might be better for you.
We can help you with other aspects of re-locating, such as advising you on the best transport links to find us, and where some of the best musical venues around Manchester are.
Do you hold open days?
We do indeed hold Open Days!
You can see the next available date and sign up for it here.
There’ll be free music production and DJ workshops, a range of industry seminars, and a chance to get lots of career advice. All are welcome.
However, if you’re keen to get started quicker than when the Open Day comes around, particularly if you’re looking to study this course, we advise booking in for an informal personal tour of the school.
Please contact a course advisor on +44 (0)161 833 4722 to make an appointment for either a tour or the Open Day.
