Course summary

Note for COVID Start: A start date of 27th September, but this is an online preparatory course which will get them ready for their studies and allow them to meet teachers and course mates virtually. Face to face will start on 19th Oct but they will have until 9th Nov to join. There is a blended learning approach with access to facilities and face to face seminars and group work, but large lectures will be online, but this allows them to access learning when its suites them.

Why study journalism (audio, docs and podcasts)

Today's fast-moving digital age has opened up enticing opportunities for journalists wanting to work in audio and radio. Producers are needed to create high-quality programmes for podcasts, radio and audio documentaries - and graduates specialising in this field will build a compelling set of skills to develop a highly versatile portfolio career.

There's a strong emphasis on developing your technical expertise, alongside the skills needed to compete as a producer, such as commissioning, pitching and getting your documentaries to air. You'll also gain useful online skills to develop your own websites and podcasts.

You will build experience on placements in some of Bristol's most innovative cultural organisations, get to pitch your work to Radio 4 commissioners, and work on your own projects with mentoring from industry.

Where can it take me?

By the end of the course, you'll be equipped to secure audio journalism work on a freelance or staff basis, in production companies and post-production facilities. You could work as a broadcast assistant, junior researcher, production assistant or studio manager.
