In your first year we'll encourage you to explore and grow your existing creative activities alongside important foundational practical and interpretive skills. This is supported in topics such as audio recording and production, sound design, critical listening, and the exploration of the relationship between music and sound to picture. In your second year you'll take your skills and creativity into the professional arena, with a series of industry guest lectures, and the opportunity to engage with external collaboration, an internship or an industry placement. You’re guided toward greater technical competence in the core areas of sound production, critical listening and sound design. We also introduce multimedia skills that will open the opportunity of creative multidisciplinary projects and support the creation of powerful self-marketing and promotional tools. Your third year is a Professional Placement Year. In your final year you’ll continue to develop your practice to produce a body of work for public exhibition.
Over 90% of assessment is through coursework, with the majority of assignments aiming to develop your professional portfolio. We're also committed to developing your written communication skills, as a way of empowering you to discuss your own work and the work of others. Tutors are always available to support assignments and particular assessment style preferences if needed.
