Students studying broadcast systems technology will spend much of their time using our industry standard broadcast and media facilities. These include a HD outside broadcast vehicle, multitrack music recording studios, radio and television production studios, editing suites, video laboratories and a Dolby certified private cinema, featuring Dolby Atmos film playback and mixing environment.

Broadcast systems students also use our dedicated electronics lab, where they will test circuits and learn to modify or service broadcasting and production equipment.

Students will then have the opportunity to take the skill that they have learnt on campus and apply them to a range of real-world briefs. In the past students have helped produce coverage of University events; recorded at Glastonbury, Truck and Butserfest music festivals; and worked with the National Youth Choir of Great Britain on their prestigious 25th anniversary concert.

The academic team is made up of practitioners from a variety of industry backgrounds. In previous years their network of contacts have provided further potential employment opportunities and work placements to students.

Students are also encouraged to develop a range of transferable skills throughout their degree. These include group leadership, IT, networking, project management, communication, problem-solving, working to deadlines and project planning.
