BLENDED LEARNING > (click to expand)
UNITED POP Online combines the benefits of online-based eLearning and offline on-site studies in our modern blended learning courses. Your Virtual Campus is open for 24 hours every day and you're not limited by time or space and are able to study while working.
You gain the highest amount of flexibility for your learning experience while studying the same courses and with the same degrees and learning outcomes as in our acclaimed on-site courses from United POP.
VIRTUAL CLASSROOM (VC) >
Our tutors are inviting you every week to a Virtual Classroom session. In this interactive video livestream our tutors explain the new topics, give hands-on advices and answer questions.
WEB BASED TRAINING (WBT) >
With our Web Based Trainings you get new materials on a weekly basis in a modern format. Either use the story mode, where the WBT runs in real-time with audio annotations, animations and video or use the book mode to learn in your own pace. Ask questions or bookmark certain topics directly in your WBT.
VIDEO TUTORIALS >
As an enrolled student you will get access to additional state-of-the-art video libraries and contents, e.g. 360° videos that let you be part in actual studio situations with a virtual reality experience and video tutorials taught by recognized industry experts.
ON SITE TRAINING >
At the beginning of each course there is a Kick-Off at our Campus in Berlin to introduce your tutors, get all information for the upcoming courses & to socialize and network with the other students. For your final exam you work on a practical project and have the chance to develop your graduation work at our campuses with the help of our experts and with state-of-the-art studio equipment.
CHAT & COMMUNITY >
Our Virtual Campus has a lot of opportunities to ask questions, chat with other students or network between different disciplines and countries. This is your chance to start your creative network and work on additional projects together with creatives around the world.
POP PROJECTS >
POP Projects offer students and graduates an opportunity to work interdisciplinary together to gain additional knowledge, receive feedback from experts and professional credits for their curriculum vitae. The terms and conditions vary depending on the different projects. There is always a release or presentation of the final work at the end of each POP Project. POP Projects are an additional feature and participation is optional.
Study anywhere at any time at your own pace.
INTERNATIONAL EXPERTS >
We are proud that we have top notch industry experts from all over the world who like to share their knowledge in our courses.
PERSONAL TUTOR >
This is not a video-based online course where students are left alone after they have enrolled. Every week you are supposed to attend a virtual-classroom session plus we offer weekly supervising sessions with your personal tutor to give you the best support during your course.
HANDS-ON TRAINING >
From more than 15 years of practical teaching experience, we know how important hands-on training and practical experience is. Hence why we offer a few weekends at selected United POP facilities where you have the opportuinty to collect real studio experience.
COMMUNITY OF LIKE-MINDED >
Studying in a group of like-minded is much more fun and engaging than on your own. Being part of an active community while studying online helps you to prevent online-learning-fatigue and helps you to succeed.
DEGREE PATHWAY >
All single courses are part of the Diploma and Bachelor programmes. So you can start easy and if you figure out that our course concept and our system works for you then you can continue with one course after the other or upgrade to a full programme.
We recommend to make a personal appointment with our study advisor who can help you with all of your individual questions.
“The course has helped me a lot to get a sound introduction to the subject of sound recording. I was convinced by the concept of weekly online lectures (Virtual Classrooms) on the one hand and the complementary course materials and exercises for self-study on the other hand. So I had regular contact with the trainers and other students throughout the course and was not completely on my own. The practice times have helped me to apply the knowledge learned and to exchange with other students. If you work full-time like me, you should not underestimate the time required.”

“When I started studying, I didn’t even know what “MIDI” or “Remix” meant! With every single course, it became clearer to me in which direction I actually wanted to go. The good thing about the music designer course - and I can recommend it to everyone - is that you learn to combine recording and working in the studio with electronic beats and synthesizers. Especially in electronic dance music, it is essential to link real instruments with digital sounds.”
