  • FEES

Application is via UCAS. The best way to access the course in UCAS is to go to APPLY in the top menu and click on the link for the campus you want to study at.

  • Tuition fees are £9,250 per year.
  • A non means-tested, a tuition fee loan may be available and is linked to the cost of your course. You can apply to borrow some of or all of the cost of your tuition fees and if you apply and are granted a loan, this will be paid directly to your Higher Education institute by Student Finance England. You don’t start repaying this loan until you have graduated and are earning over £25,000. Payments come directly out of your salary, so you don’t have to worry about it.
  • Candidates must be at least 18 years of age on 31st December on the year of entry.
  • You will be required to achieve a recognised Level 3 qualification (e.g. RSL, BTEC, A Levels) which generates a minimum of 64 UCAS points (2017 tariff) in a music related subject, or where music is a key component.
  • All candidates must have achieved A* – C in GCSE Maths and English. > You will be required to provide evidence of your prior qualifications
    (achieved or predicted).
  • Mature candidates (21+ years of age) with non-standard qualifications and/ or substantial experience in the music or related industries, are encouraged to apply and will be considered if they demonstrate appropriate ability through interview.
  • Students who do not have English as a first language are required to achieve the equivalence of a minimum of 6.0 overall with no band below 5.5 from a Secured English Language Test (SELT), the most common being IELTS, PTE or CAE. A student may be advised to undertake additional language courses or receive language support toward achieving the required standard by the start of the course, during the first term or by the end of the first year, as the situation demands.
  • Applicants without the full entry requirements may be considered for non- standard entry.

It is NTU policy not to interview candidates. Instead a decision will be made from your UCAS application and prior achievement.
