The UK is a world leader when it comes to media. Whether it’s music, film, television or games, our presence is felt at the highest level and on a global scale. For each of these industries, audio is the common link, the one thing they all need.
BSc (Hons) Audio Engineering and Production deals directly with music production, post-production for film and television as well as audio design for games. With a strong emphasis on high standards of practical work, well-developed written and verbal communication, this course provides the right vocational-academic blend for industry or postgraduate study.
It’s a course for anyone passionate about sound.
Whether it’s music, film dialogue or sound effects, provided you share our obsession for the way audio is captured, manipulated and applied, then this is the course for you.
Commended for our course design and real-world briefs, the success of this course owes most to our experienced and professional tutor team, our extensive industry compliant facilities, smaller class sizes and of course our students at the heart of the Futureworks creative community.
