Making Music at Farnborough

There are lots of opportunities to engage with and enjoy all kinds of music as a student at Farnborough College of Technology. Here are the top five things that you may get up to if you study the Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma in Music and Music Technology.

1. You could perform live for FCOT FM, our in-house live radio station, showcasing your latest tracks or covers.


2. You’ll have the chance to make use of all the fantastic music facilities, including a live performance stage, mix room and recording studio.

Recently our Music students were visited by Former music students, Tom Puttick and Jack Le Breton, who spoke about a number of projects and ventures, most recently the music production for the newly released computer game “Two Point Hospital”. Within their talk, Tom and Jack used their experiences to provide valuable insight into the industry for current students.
