Hi,
I'm looking to do either Computing and Music tech at uni and wondered what unis would be good to look at. I'm doing the IB, but not doing music. Would I have to have some sort of Music Tech qualification to be in with a chance of getting into a Music Tech course?

Any help appreciated,
Thanks

The best course is supposed to be the "tonmeister" at university of Surrey. It is pretty competitive to get on and I think they like you to have maths, physics and music A level, but they will take you without the music if you have grade 8 on an instrument and do an audition.

my friend is doing that course and was told the same thing, that if he had grade 8 (in which he got a distinction) and auditioned he'd be ok. he took maths, physics and music tech AS, after which they announced he had to do music AS, so he took it in year 13. he's really enjoying the course but it's very very maths/physic-sy.

my boyfriend is doing music tech (and "innovation" - nobody knows what that bit means!) at de montfort university in leicester - he's just finished his first year. he also had unconditional offers from leeds met and hull. he chose dmu because of the city and student life style. although the teaching is not the best in the country, he's really enjoyed the course, which is much more "hands-on". he's done website design and animation as well as production and composition. he's also head of production of the uni's (award winning!) radio station. i know a lot of his lectures are the same for computing degrees, so if you're interested in both that could be a good course. he also said that hull has got amazing equipment but it's a tiny campus, i think it's something like 8000 students! it depends what type of atmosphere and course focus you're going for.

with regards to IB, i know my bloke basically got in on his experience - he has two (lowish) a levels in maths and music. he had two years out when he worked as a sound technician amongst other things, and his experience got him unconditional offers at some good unis!

hope this helps a bit!

ps i live in chelmsford!
