Radio and Digital Production - University of Westminster

Radio is prospering thanks to its ability to adapt to new forms of consumption and is being transformed for the next generation of listeners. Our degree in Radio and Digital Production prepares you for all aspects of this amazing medium, from producing audio for new platforms, to creating your own pop-up radio station. Our students tell us they like the location of the campus - right on the doorstep of the London media industries, our professional-standard equipment (including a brand new studio) and the range of modules to choose from. We also offer a tightly-knit and supportive learning community. The course teaches you to produce audio and digital content for a variety of broadcast platforms, using the latest technology. Practical production work is also complemented by academic scholarship in media theory. Our lecturers are among the top names in their field, and together we will help you develop the necessary skills in entrepreneurship and employability, to prepare you for the workplace. Our recent graduates have gone to work for the BBC and the commercial radio sector (as broadcast assistants and producers, studio managers and presenters), as well as setting up in digital and social media. Our approach is to provide you with all the practical skills you need to work in radio, audio and multimedia production. We combine this with the development of your entrepreneurial skills, so that every practical piece of work is based around pitch and commission, culminating in an individual project where you create and curate audio for an outside organisation. Another key aspect of the degree focuses on the development of your ability to analyse and communicate ideas relating to theoretical debates across the media. Your understanding of the social, political and economic context within which the media operates will help you produce a major piece of original research in your final year. Learning takes place through a combination of face-to-face teaching – lectures, workshops, seminars, and small group and one-to-one sessions – and guided independent study on group projects, individual assignments, research tasks and preparation. The course is based at the recently refurbished Harrow Campus – home to Westminster School of Media, Arts and Design – where you will work alongside students from film, photography, music, fashion and journalism, in a unique hothouse of creative opportunity.
