Our study environment

Studying at The Open University means you have a lot of flexibility about how and where you study, but our music qualifications go further than that and offer students the chance to take part in a residential school at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, as part of the Practice of music making module. You’ll receive hands-on teaching from leading professional teachers to help develop your music-making skills, whatever your level of attainment and whatever kind of music you make.

Music and your career

There are a range of music-related careers, such as performing, teaching, and music therapy, but studying music also develops a range of transferable skills that are useful and highly valued in many unrelated careers. These videos, produced by The National Association for Music in Higher Education, explore the skills music graduates feel they have gained.
