Program description

BMus (Hons) Music with Foundation Year (Integrated Degree)

This one-year foundation allows you to develop key musical skills and experience to prepare you for university life and to study on our BMus Music or BMus Popular Music programmes.

Do you want to study music at university but lack formal training or experience? This programme gives you the chance to gain key practical and theoretical skills and experience across music theory, performance, technology, composition and music history. Upon graduation, you gain automatic entry onto our Bachelor of Music degree, and/or an interview for our Popular Music programme.

Make music in a vibrant London community

The Foundation gives you an opportunity to make music with students from across different degree programmes in a lively and vibrant departmental community. This community features everything from orchestral, jazz and pop ensembles to gamelan, mbira and improvising groups. You'll also have the opportunity to perform at open mics, student-run showcasee and PureGold, our annual music festival that celebrates music created and performed at Goldsmiths.

You'll be within easy reach of South East London's many venues during your time with us, as well as those across the capital, which provide a connection to music, art, dance, and theatre with an international focus, but also to local promoters, labels and the London-based music industry.
