Music Technology BA(Hons): After you graduate

Careers and progression

Graduates from this course are employed in a broad range of music-related careers, such as: music producer; sound engineer; live sound manager; sound designer; event manager; music programmer; post-production sound editor; foley artist & sound recordist; musician; performer; music teacher; composer; music manager.

In addition to building expertise in your own discipline, our courses will also help you to develop key transferable skills that you'll need for professional life or further study once you graduate. 

As well as a range of careers and employability activities at Kingston, we also offer you the chance to apply and develop your skills in live contexts as an integral part of your course. Opportunities include:

  • placements;
  • working or studying abroad;
  • volunteering;
  • peer mentoring roles; and
  • internship opportunities within and outside the University.

In your final year, you'll get the opportunity to complete a major 'capstone' project where you can apply the knowledge and skills you have acquired to a range of real issues in different contexts. This is a great way to learn and is a valuable bridge to employment or further research at masters level.
