Music diplomas

LCM diplomas in music performance and in music teaching are regulated by Ofqual, Qualifications Wales and CCEA.

Additionally, LCM diplomas in music are mapped against the BMus and MMus Performance / Composition degree courses at University of West London, which are validated by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA).

Each diploma carries a nominal number of credits (typically 20 credits, representing one degree module, or one sixth of the total number of credits required to complete one year of the degree course).

BMus and MMus students who hold an LCM diploma are therefore automatically eligible to bypass the relevant module or modules on the degree course.

The mapping documentation is available here. Please contact us if you require any further information.

Other degree-awarding institutions may, on a discretionary basis, accept LCM diplomas as Approved Prior Learning (APL) on a similar basis.
