Subject

Audio technology

This degree builds on the industry-recognised HNC. All first year entrants will start on the HNC and the entry requirements are therefore for this programme. Successful completion will allow you to progress onto the second year of the degree. Applicants already holding a relevant HNC qualification can apply for direct entry to the second year. When completing your application make sure you choose year two. It may be possible for applicants holding a relevant HND qualification to apply for direct entry to year three, again where this is the case please make sure you choose year three when completing your application.

This honours degree is an excellent choice if you are interested in developing a career in this dynamic and exciting field of professional audio. You will have access to leading edge equipment, venues and recording studios where you can collaborate with music students. This gives a realistic industry environment in which to learn technical skills and develop your creativity. As well as academic coursework, you will take part in practical projects such as recording and producing student bands, creating broadcast content, and working in professional theatres and live venues, as well as our own campus venues and production rooms. Our lecturers are experienced, research active professionals. The course is also industry accredited by Joint Audio Media Education Support (JAMES) representing the Association of Professional Recording Services (APRS), the Music Producers Guild (MPG), UK Screen and associate industry bodies. This provides assurance to you and employers of its potential and value.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
