What our Audio and Music students get up to
Music Week profiles the brightest new talents in the business and it has put Jamie Leeming, digital agent at United Talent Agency, who graduated in from BNU, under the spotlight.
Buckinghamshire New University graduate Nadina Edouard counts herself lucky as she thrives in her career as a private events manager and artist booker at ALR Music - having taken a bold and exciting career path.
Our 3rd year Music Business student, Rachael, shares her BNU journey and how the last three years have been for her. Originally drawn to BNU for our friendly atmosphere and community feel, Rachael knew from the first moment that she stepped foot on campus, it was where she was meant to be.
With over a quarter of a century of teaching under our belt, we have an array of amazing alumni who have found success since graduating from BNU. Some of which now work for companies such as APG, All My Friends Digital, Big Deal Films, ALR Music, United Talent Industry, Songtrust.
In the years after BNU I myself have been an artist, presenter, freelance events coordinator and now a private events manager and artist booker. The skills I learned at BNU on my course and through the social and sporting aspects of University have helped shape me as an individual and in my career.
Every time I mention I went to BNU in this industry, people light up.
The lecturers and people who work here are incredibly helpful and supportive, the studios are really well equipped and there are plenty of opportunities for students to develop their interests. It is a really understanding and stimulating environment.
