Introducing our new framework for August 2019, getting you EVEN MORE Industry Ready.


We’re changing things up for the 2019/2020 session in order to strengthen our commitment of giving our students the most industry relevant educational experience.


Firstly, we are delighted to introduce the RMC Industry Award


During their 2 year HND, our students work towards achieving the award by building a working CV and Practical Portfolio through their Professional Development Project (PDP). The Industry Award is based on practical and occupational outputs of PDP subjects and involves candidates participating in extra-curricular, cross course and professional activities. The award is graded (Pass/Merit/Distinction) on the professionalism demonstrated in these activities, with attention also on the student’s attendance, application, progress and professional attitude.


We’ve changed the framework for all of our SQA Industry Courses…


Every single unit on our HND courses is selected and designed specifically with the future career of our students in mind. Whether focused on practical application, theory, or the inner workings of the industry, every unit counts towards the development of our students as future music industry professionals.
