Course summary

The programme provides students with the requisite technical, creative and industrial skills for a range of exciting careers within the music, audio post- production (TV and Film) and games industries. The programme caters for wide ranging interests and potential specialisms in the final year. In the first year, students receive a thorough technical, theoretical and experiential grounding in core audio and music technologies and industrial practices. In the second year, the emphasis in on practice: students are able to apply the core skills acquired at Level 4 and through collaborative practice a number of key technical industry roles (sound engineering, on-location sound recordist, mastering engineer, live sound engineer) will be explored; students will also investigate a number of key creative roles within the industry (sound designer, foley artist, dialogue editor, media composer); and concept and design roles (studio designer, broadcast engineer, audio electronics engineer). In the final year, students have a broad range of options allowing them to pursue individual interests and enthusiasms and build upon the skills and experiences acquired so far. The emphasis is on interfacing with our industry partners and developing employability skills through project-based individual and collaborative work.

The standard entry requirement for this programme is IELTS 6.0 with no element lower than 5.5. However, you can begin your 3-year degree programme with IELTS 5.5. Our International Route allows you to take 4 credit-bearing modules in International English Studies (IES) as part of your first year studies. This means you study 4 modules in your chosen subject and 4 in International English. The IES Modules allow you to focus on personal language development and your use of English as an academic language. Then, at the end of your first year, you’ll have all the necessary language skills to transfer to full study of your main subject. If you have an IELTS score under 5.5 you can still begin a 3-year degree programme with us. In this case we provide a 5 or 10 week intensive Presessional Programme in English language and academic skills. For the 10 week Programme you’ll need IELTS 4.5, and IELTS 5.0 for the 5 week Programme.

Further details of our international entry requirements can be found on our website.
