Community Music does not have its own Students’ union. However, since its degree course is accredited by the University of Westminster, Community Music students are able to join the University of Westminster Students’ Union (UWSU) which is one of the largest student-run organisations in London and offers a huge variety of services and opportunities to enhance the university experience.
Community Music students gain membership of an organisation which represents over 20,000 students, making sure their voices are heard, and co-ordinating an exciting yearly timetable of events and activities. Members benefit from all facilities provided by the university, as well as access to the many clubs and societies on offer.
Students can get involved in various Community Music vocational projects, including the Business Support programme which helps small businesses establish themselves in the industry.
There is also an Artist Development programme to support artists and musicians wishing to develop a career in the industry, while the Live Events programme offers students the chance to perform at festivals and concerts.
Community Music students have full access to over 100 clubs and special interest societies organised by UWSU, which include sport teams, language groups, film and theatre clubs and so much more. There are many recreational societies where students can meet new people and try new activities, making friends which can last a lifetime.
Community Music is located in the heart of one of London’s most culturally diverse, artistically creative and thriving areas. Brick Lane and Shoreditch are vibrant hubs of emerging artists and a new wave of design studios, tech startups and commercial art galleries. The area has an array of bars, pubs and clubs, all open until the small hours.
Studying in London as a Community Music musician means being surrounded by inspiration and top class performance venues such as the O2 Arena, KOKO, Brixton Academy and Roundhouse. There are also plenty of museums, galleries and theatres to discover, as well as around music festivals, vintage fairs and outdoor film nights organised throughout the year.
Students can enjoy the views of the city around Primrose Hill, relax with a coffee on the Southbank or even go on a weekend trip with other great cities like Brighton, Bristol and Cardiff just a short train ride away.
