The Foundation Year will allow you to develop your academic study skills and build confidence in your abilities, identifying your own strengths and development needs for progression onto an undergraduate degree.
Does experimenting with sound recordings and music interest you? Audio and Music Production explores the technical and creative aspect of sound. And it gives you the opportunity to work with companies such as the BBC.
You don’t have to be musically trained. We’re looking for students who have a fascination for sound and a flair for music. If that’s you, then we’ll give you the skills you’ll need for a career in the industry.
Create projects as a team
Any media production draws on a range of skills. To reflect the real world, you’ll work as a part of a production crew on campus and off on site with our partners. You’ll collaborate with students from other courses, including Film & TV and Performing Arts on projects ranging from the screen to the stage. Working with other courses is a lot of fun. We’ve had briefs taking students to Glastonbury, Dolby and Pinewood. And it means you start making professional relationships that carry on after university.

By the time you graduate, you’ll have the ability to project manage yourself and a portfolio crammed with real life experience. Our Careers and Employability team will also help to find you work placements in and around the area. Recent placements have included Sennheiser.
