University of Aberdeen
Candidates must normally possess a good 2nd Class Honours degree (or its equivalent) in a subject of relevance to sonic arts (such as music, computer science, fine arts, media studies, theatre studies, performance, film) or at a level deemed equivalent. In addition to these university requirements, each application must be accompanied by the following: Contact details for 2 referees (not required for students and alumni of the University of Aberdeen); a short statement (1000 words) reflecting the applicant's interest in sonic arts, their technical background, and a proposal for the final project; 2 pieces of creative work, such as compositions, creative writing, video clips of performance, visual work (2D or 3D, moving or non-moving), sound art and installation work, computer applications, or sound design portfolio for films, videos or games. The materials listed above should be submitted to the programme coordinator, separately from the university application. Even if you have been educated in the medium of English you must meet our English language requirements (certain countries may be exempted from this requirement).
The Core Modules: composing with sound; sound design for film and new media;
final research project in sonic arts.
Both formative and summative assessments are made in all core courses of the programme. The formative assessments may include in-class presentations, journals, analyses, essays, and small in-class and take-home assignments whereas the summative assessments may include mid-term and final projects.
