More about University of Westminster
The Music degree at Westminster encourages a diverse range of music styles and genres, covering everything including Rock, Pop, R&B, Grime, Jazz, Acoustic, EDM and more. Applicants with backgrounds and interests in music which fall outside of conventional music education such as DJs, underground music or electronica artists are also strongly encouraged to apply for the course.
I will try to find a current student who will answer your thread so you'll get a student perspective and you'll be in a better position to make an informed choice about the music course at Westminster.
You may be interested in attending an open day on Saturday 10 March. The music studios will be open for you to look around and you'll be able to speak with students currently studying on the course.

I am currently a third year student at Westminster, studying Music. I find the course amazing, got great lecturers and great facilities. I came here as a performer mainly but I've learned so much more about the production aspect of music as well as the business side of it. The modules are really well structured, focusing on the development of everyone individually, no matter what kind of music background you've got, which gave me the opportunity to develop my artistic identity (singer/songwriter and pianist). The course is really interactive and it offered me loads of opportunities to perform, to participate in various masterclasses with music industry professionals as well as provide me with an insight into other areas of music such as Composing for Media, Music Tech, etc. I am confident enough to say that after I graduate this year I will have loads of opportunities to work in the music industry. I definitely recommend this course! Hope this helps.
P.S. You definitely need to come and check out the recording studios and the practice rooms. This is another main reason for which I chose to study here at Westminster. Great facilities!
Just a bit confused, though, is there only one undergraduate music degree available at the moment? I've seen other music students at Westminster say that they're doing a different degree (I think it was commercial music) as compared to the one I've seen on the website (Production, Performance and Enterprise). Would love some help with this
We offered two music degrees, a performance only one and a business music management course. The department have re-structured the course and we've combined two into one.
You might enter the course with a combination of aspirations to be a music artist, producer, performer, songwriter, composer, musicologist, journalist, DJ, technologist, entrepreneur, business specialist or educator - this course nurtures those aspirations, whilst also ensuring that a broad range of music-related skills are developed as well.
Hope this helps.
