Music for The Moving Image

Teaching & Learning

We regularly review our courses to ensure we are offering you the best educational experience. This course is currently being reviewed for 2020 entry, therefore the information below is correct for students joining us in 2019/20, but there may be changes for students who wish to join us in 2020/21. These will be confirmed in the course specification made available to new applicants on this page from August 2020.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic we are currently unable to advise on the mode of teaching for September 2021, however we will keep you updated and provide more information as soon as we can. We continue to follow government guidance and your teaching and learning will reflect the restrictions in place at the time of delivery. We currently anticipate that you may experience a blended approach – this is a mix of face-to-face, on campus and online teaching and learning. You can keep up to date with teaching and learning at Leeds Beckett via our Covid-19 website. Updated course specifications will be available in August 2021. In the meantime, our existing course specifications are available.
