On this course you will harness the whole gamut of sonic resources for your creative practice - from acoustic instruments to electroacoustic sound, utilising all the latest studio techniques and technologies. You'll study in the University's top-class studios, supported by tutors who are experienced industry professionals, with potential to collaborate with students from our MA Film course. With targeted sessions and expert guidance, you'll develop a showreel demonstrating your creative talent in providing sound and music for a wide range of media (video, film, videogames), opening up a 360º horizon of possibilities and opportunities for work.
