Course summary

Course Details

Explore the creative and technical aspects of location sound, studio sound production and sound design. There are increasing numbers of freelancers in sound design and this course has been created to help those already working in the industry update their skills in the planning, generation and manipulation of audio soundtracks. At the same time, it meets the training requirements of those new to the field and will help develop and encourage fresh talent. Working closely with the University's Northern Film School and guided by a highly-skilled teaching team with extensive industry experience, you will have the opportunity to collaborate with the University's MA Filmmaking students at all stages of the filmmaking process, including shooting, editing and post-production. This hands-on experience will be complemented by academic and practical studies in sound design. You will also benefit from our links with local and national music, arts and festival organisations, which will provide plenty of opportunities to practise your skills in a live setting.

Course Benefits
