Course summary

About Keele Set in 600 acres of countryside in North Staffordshire, we have one of the largest and most beautiful campuses in Britain. We’re proud to be Top 10 in England for Overall Student Satisfaction (broad-based public universities, NSS 2021), investing more than £140m in our campus in the last ten years, including £45m new science laboratories. In 2021 we were proud to be awarded Global Sustainability Institution of the Year at the prestigious International Green Gown Awards as part of our mission to become a carbon neutral campus by 2030. We're committed to supporting you to achieve your career goals, and have a dedicated Careers and Employability team who can assist you to navigate your options beyond Keele. Foundation Year If you do not meet the requirements for direct entry onto a degree programme, our foundation year can provide an alternative route into your degree. The course provides preparation for the academic skills required for degree level study, delivering the opportunity to develop the questioning and analytical skills required for progression into your chosen programme. Upon meeting the progression criteria and successfully completing the foundation year, you will automatically progress into your Keele undergraduate degree with the confidence that you have the skills, and knowledge needed to successfully complete your course. We offer a September and January intake across many of our Foundation Year programmes with our January start point offering a compressed timeframe (January-July) but without the loss of teaching weeks or acceleration of teaching and content delivery. Unless otherwise stated, the UCAS equal consideration deadline for all undergraduate applications, except those with a 15 October deadline is 26 January. For our January 2023 foundation year entry, the application deadline is 16 December 2022. Unfortunately we are unable to offer a January intake for the Veterinary Medicine and Surgery degree with Foundation Year and other health-related Foundation Year degrees. You can switch between the September and January UCAS pages by using the blue 'course options available' button above. We welcome direct applications for the January entry point.

You will examine the cultural contexts in which sound is produced for and consumed in various media and develop a portfolio of skills that will help you achieve your career ambitions in the creative industries, such as TV, radio, film and games. Through workshops, tutorials and assessments, you will develop technical skills, creative practice, and academic knowledge by working with audio software, hardware, and digital audio in studio and production set ups. Taught by staff with international experience and research in a range of specialisms, you will gain experience in sound recording, audio design and digital sampling. You will also explore programming, mixing, mastering and producing sound. There will be opportunities to work individually and collaboratively and to deliver inspiring projects under the guidance of supportive tutors.
