Radio Production

Radio is constantly adapting and evolving - it is the soundtrack of 21st century life. It brings us constant news, information and music on conventional channels and on the latest digital, agile devices. Our programme equips you with academic, editorial and creative skills to engage fully with the first electronic mass medium.

Entry requirements

The entry requirement is a 1st degree; there is no requirement for prospective students to hold a 1st degree specifically in media, as the level of theoretical and practical teaching and learning accounts for students who hold degrees from different disciplines. Applications from non-traditional or mature students, with relevant professional experience, are welcomed.

Course modules

Modules include: Radio studio: strip formats and magazine programmes; radio live: outside broadcasts and 'remotes'; contemporary media issues; radio industry practices; new media practices; research skills and methods; radio project.

Assessment methods

Assessment is through group and individual practical work and written coursework. The radio project will enable you to pursue your particular interests through either a dissertation or research by practice.
