Vote for BRIT Award winners

Calling all Solent students – if you love music don’t miss our latest competition: a chance to have your say and vote on who should win at next year’s BRIT awards.

We’re looking for four students who know their James Bay from Adele, and Catfish and the Bottlemen from Justin Bieber, to join the BRIT voting academy this autumn.

The opportunity has come about thanks to our new Music Academic Partnership with UK Music, and we are one of only a small handful of universities able to offer this unique experience to students.
