Together we’ll explore specialist techniques in recording and audio engineering. You’ll gain a detailed knowledge of studio design and installation. You’ll practise in professional-grade studios, edit and listening rooms. 


Have you got any experience? 

This is the most common question you’ll be asked in job interviews. We make sure that by the time you graduate, you’ve got lots of examples to talk about. We host monthly live music ‘Herts Jam’ events where you can perform your music or ‘engineer’ the events for others. You can gain work placement years with recording studios or companies like Focusrite, The Famous Company and Sound Technology, which is a leading distributer of recognised brands, or take a self-employed placement year. This will give you a valuable insight into the commercial reality of the industry. The experiences you gain with us will help you feel confident in interviews and beyond. Our graduates have an excellent reputation for their technical skills, creative flare, and ambition. We know this because every year, companies ask us to recommend our graduates.
