BA (Hons) Audio and Music Production

BA (Hons) Audio and Music Production is primarily a practice-based vocational course that prepares students for employment in both studio-based and 'live' audio environments. New and future media constitutes a significant area of study and the delivery of modules related to business practice and entrepreneurship underpin the vocational element of this course that prepare graduates for careers that are typically freelance-based. These include business modules that delve into areas such as finance/negotiation and communication, self-employment, intellectual property law and allied rights. Students are expected to graduate with an ability to 'hit the ground running', possessing a portfolio of work and project management skills which will make them readily employable in the live and recorded audio sectors.

Audio skills are applied through an array or experiences that, from the 2nd year onwards, increasingly engage with major employers. For example our formal partnership with BBC Introducing involves us filming (via our Outside Broadcast facility) three bands each calendar month throughout the academic year, and the Audio & Music Production students are responsible for audio capture and post-production working in collaboration with students on our BA (Hons) Film & TV Production in particular. The sound recordings go to air via the regional Berks/Bucks/Beds BBC Introducing radio show and the video assets produced go on the BBC Introducing YouTube page and occasionally on BBC iPlayer.
