Department of Music & Audio Arts (Medway)
Studying Music and Audio Arts at Kent combines musical and sonic creativity with innovative use and understanding of technology. We have a range of purpose-designed studios at our Medway campus including recording, practice and post-production facilities. New riverside facilities will expand these with spaces including a new 5.1 recording and composition studio, a spatial sound studio, Foley and rehearsal spaces. For more details, click here.

The University of Kent recognises the role that music and culture plays in the development of the individual and the benefits cultural activities bring to the wider University community.
Both Music Scholarships are intended to recognise and encourage excellence, and are awarded to around 15 new applicants each year. In return, the University expects the recipient to make a major contribution to the musical life of the campus. Scholarships will normally be allocated only to those whose musical interests and talents can be supported within the University community.
