Course Introduction

Open to international students only, our BMus/BSc Music Computing (with International Foundation Year) is suitable for you if your academic qualifications do not yet meet our entrance requirements for an undergraduate degree. This four'year course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three years of undergraduate study. International students who are admitted to this programme will normally be eligible for a four'year CAS and student visa. This will last the duration of the degree. Our English language and academic skills modules supplement your academic subjects. This programme is delivered jointly by the Departments of Music and Computing, and builds on their recognised expertise in the creative arts and the innovative application of computer science to stimulate and promote creative work. Music computing is a rapidly evolving, innovative subject, and the degree is designed to meet the opportunities, challenges and intellectual demands presented by careers in the culture industries, in music technology and in audio, music and media'related computing. You'll develop understanding across the broad fields of computer science, creative practice and musical research. You'll study with a wide range of academics, including internationally established composers, performers, writers, and computing experts. There are professional and student'led recitals, concerts, workshops and other music events taking place every week, with opportunities to perform at Goldsmiths and in public venues. You'll be within easy reach of central London's many venues, concert halls, opera houses and research libraries, providing a great international focus. Employers look for initiative'driven graduates who think critically about their actions, work well with others and adapt quickly to new ideas. This degree will help you develop these skills.
