About the course

As Hull celebrates a successful year as UK City of Culture, there has never been a better time to study music and film with us. You'll enjoy brand new facilities, such as the Middleton Hall –  a world-class concert venue, and our industry-standard multi-media recording and editing facilities. 

The programme is for those who love both film and music. It focuses on those areas where the two subjects integrate – such as composing for film, the academic study of film music, cinematic sound design and even game audio. The course combines practical skills with creative theory and allows you to tailor the degree to match your interests. You'll develop a critical understanding of a range of practices under the guidance of expert staff from both disciplines. Your studies will also be enhanced by extracurricular opportunities including staff- and student-led ensembles, workshops, collaborations and productions.
