In the past, music business students have had the opportunity to set up and run their own record label and music students can get involved with performing or recording a live lounge for Edinburgh College TV.

Further learning and employment  

After completing a HND in Music, Music Business or Sound Production you can go on to study degree programmes at various universities. You can also get an honours degree in three years without leaving Edinburgh College through our BMus (Hons) top up degree delivered in partnership with Kingston University.  

If further study isn’t for you, there are lots of employment opportunities within the industry. The established work placements at Edinburgh College can help put you ahead of the competition. Music business graduates have gone on to work at major labels like Sony and Universal.
