Course content

Radio is constantly adapting and evolving – it is the soundtrack of 21st-century life. It brings us constant news, information and music on conventional channels and on the latest digital, agile devices.

Our MA course aims to equip you with academic, editorial and creative skills to engage fully with the first electronic mass medium.

This course aims to help you gain the skills, knowledge and experience required to work in the radio industry.

Our radio station, The Cat Radio, is the heart of the course and is where students learn and develop their radio production skills – often live on air. The station won an I Love Student Radio Award for Best Training Initiative in 2016. The station is broadcast on AM and online and is regulated by Ofcom.

You will be taught by award-winning staff who still work in the industry, so you can be sure their practice is up to date. Guest speakers feature regularly – from the BBC and commercial radio.
