The Music Industries Placement

Students on the MLitt in The Music Industries programme spend part of semester 2 on placement with a one of a number of Music Industries related employers conducting research on their behalf as part of a dedicated placement.

This provides students with experience of a work environment within the Music Industries or related industries and allows them to critically reflect upon practice within those industries.

The aims of the placement are to:

  • Develop/enhance skills in Music Industries' practices.
  • Develop amongst students a reflective approach to Music Industries work.
  • Provide a structured context within which theories relating to the Music Industries can be explored and related to practice.
  • Develop students' critical approach to Music Industries practices.
  • Explore problem-solving within the Music Industries.

Please note that while we endeavour to match students’ interests with their placement, we cannot guarantee that students will get placements with a particular employer or that all the organisations listed above will offer placements in any particular year.
