YourEHU Performing Arts – Applicant Visit Day

If you are studying an eligible programme, you will receive an invitation to an Applicant Visit Day by email and post.

These events are your chance to spend some time on-campus before you have to make your firm and insurance choices in May, and for you to find out what it would be like to study and socialise here.

What is it?

You will be able to:

    • take part in a subject taster session, or have a one-to-one session with academic staff from your department – your opportunity to get a feel for what studying your course would be like
    • chat to current students from your department – the perfect way to find out what student life is like here!
    • view our range of on-campus accommodation and see what life in halls of residence looks like
    • find out about accommodation, finance, student support, study abroad options and career advice
    • go on a campus tour and find out where you will be studying, as well as where you will be socialising!

Even if you have previously attended an open day, we strongly recommend attending an applicant visit day as it provides a very different experience.

When are they taking place?

If you are studying BA (Hons) Music Production, the dates for your Applicant Visit Day are Wednesday 12 February or Saturday 29 February.

If you are studying a joint programme within the department the date for this event is Saturday 14 March.

How do I book?

There are two ways to book onto your Applicant Visit Day, which you can do shortly after you receive your offer:

  1. Follow the link in the email we sent to confirm your place
  2. We will post you a booking form which you can return (free of charge) and we will process your booking

Subject taster details

BA (Hons) Music Production

The Music Production taster session will be a practical session, designed to expose applicants to the challenges of recording acoustic pianos. Both upright and grand pianos will be considered, along with their construction and how this impacts upon the sound they produce.

A selection of different microphone types and techniques will be explored in a modern recording studio equipped with high resolution digital audio recording technology. The session will give applicants the opportunity to engage with a practical task, typical of studio based modules in Music Production, and to speak to staff who actually teach on the programme.
