Any media production draws on a range of skills. To reflect the real world, you’ll work as a part of a production crew on campus and off on site with our partners. You’ll collaborate with students from other courses, including Film & TV and Performing Arts on projects ranging from the screen to the stage.
Working with other courses is a lot of fun. We’ve had briefs taking students to Glastonbury, Dolby and Pinewood. And it means you start making professional relationships that carry on after university.
There’s more to Music Production than performance. It’s also a business. We include business modules to give you an insight into the challenges that freelance technicians face, such as finance and legal guidance.
By the time you graduate, you’ll have the ability to project manage yourself and a portfolio crammed with real life experience. Our Careers and Employability team will also help to find you work placements in and around the area. Recent placements have included Sennheiser.
At Bucks New University, we have excellent teachers, well-equipped spaces and household names as partners. Audio and Music Production is a JAMES accredited course, which carries real weight with employers when you graduate.
Our tutors have worked in live studio-based music production, sound design and location. They bring a wealth of experience from film, TV and radio to their teaching. We also have visiting tutors who keep you updated on the latest developments in sound production.
Every month, Bucks students work with BBC Introducing, a project for unsigned artists to promote themselves online and on BBC radio. Working with the Film and TV students, you’ll record sound and work on post-production. Your work will get airtime on the Bucks, Berks and Beds BBC Introducing radio show, as well as BBC YouTube and possibly even iPlayer.
You’ll record and produce audio in the Sennheiser Sound Lab. Our main studio has been fully equipped by our partners, Sennheiser, a world leading production supplier. We have other top quality suppliers, including Midas, Focusrite, Novation and AC Lighting, so you can get your hands on the same tools as the best in the business.
We have a working relationship with our local theatres, such as Wycombe Swan Theatre and Wycombe Town Hall. You’ll work as sound technician for university productions, responsible for the audio. You’ll be a valued part of the team and gain lots of experience along the way.
Audio and Music Production can lead into many different careers, including studio and live production, sound design, music performance, music technology retail, and music hardware and software support.
