Music Innovation and Enterprise Project (W3074)

30 credits, Level 6

Spring teaching

This module allows you to undertake either an industry placement or a special project which otherwise falls outside of the remit of the other modules by presenting a compelling, music-related proposal to the module convenor for approval in the preceding academic term. Past projects have included work in the music and broadcast industry, education, therapy, curation, and events. In each case, the theme of the project focuses on experiential learning and collaboration, through investigation and working outside of the institution with practitioners and professionals.    

You will be responsible for setting up and conducting the project and will receive four 30-mins supervisions with an allocated supervisor throughout the term to monitor progress and help with providing the critical reflection, or guidance required, to fulfil the agreed project aims. You will develop organisational and project management skills and undertaking a project or placement could offer invaluable insight into current working practices and other activities suitable to support a developing career.
