This course is commensurate to the first year of a degree and requires you to work independently, undertake research and assess your growth as a musician through practice. It is primarily delivered within our learner management system (LMS).
A wealth of information is presented in written form, audio and video and is presented in a careful step-by-step approach.
MLC periodically hosts live webinars and communications are sent to the student cohort covering resource updates and other helpful, relevant information.
A manageable deadline for submissions will be mutually agreed by you and your mentor.
Each unit will be reviewed by a member of the course team at MLC individually and in chronological order. The review will take form in comments being made within the shared Google Doc submission and you will be invited to meet your mentor—either face-to-face or online—to discuss the review in an open forum. You may then need to make alterations and re-submit.
Peer reviews and work experience can be facilitated by you or in conjunction with MLC. Help and advice will be given as you approach those units. Your initial purchase entitles you up to 20 hours of feedback and guidance time. Additional time can be purchased should you desire it.
Once each unit has been completed and mutually agreed upon, your work will be compiled as a portfolio and submitted to the awarding body in accordance with their rules and regulations. You will then be invited by them to take part in a viva voce. Your results and examiner’s report will then be posted to MLC and shared with you. This process will take place at MLC Nottingham and is subject to additional fees. All of which are publicly available on the awarding body’s website.
It is expected that this course should be completed within 45 weeks of signing up. It is advised and strongly recommended that you meet with MLC—in person or online—before signing up for this course.
Though reasonable efforts are taken to ensure that your journey when undertaking this course is a pleasant one, success cannot be guaranteed. Support is available though it cannot necessarily be preempted. Continued communication between you and MLC/your mentor is a prerequisite in order that you stand the best chance possible ensuring a successful outcome.
