Your Career

Previous graduates have prepared themselves for what is known as a portfolio career, setting up their own sound/music for image company; providing orchestral scores and arrangements for recording sessions, original soundtracks, library music and sound effects. They may also undertake bespoke sound design for clients. Some students have developed sample packs and set up a production company in their placement year making a smooth transition from being student entrepreneurs to professionals. There is support available after you graduate from our 3M Buckley Innovation Centre where you can get advice on starting your own business.
