Why choose this course?
Learn and work in a real production environment – this Radio Production course is developed in close collaboration with leading industry experts and professional radio producers.
The course, which focusses on exploring current and emerging technologies applicable to radio production, is different to many as students can engage in the day-to-day operation of the FM radio station and production facilities , extending student participation beyond the lecture theatre.
Students will also develop a theoretical and practical understanding across a range of skills in radio production, Journalism, Media Business, and Broadcasting and Presentation skills.
The course centres around the use of the university’s community radio station where students explore the various styles and methods for producing radio shows in an eclectic range of genres. It is designed to teach and develop skills across disciplines and covers a broad range of technologies that will help in the development of your own portfolio.
As well as the radio studio, the course is built around the practical use of the university’s Centre for the Creative Industries and its wide range of facilities. The centre is home to BBC Cymru Wales in North East Wales.
