Bachelor of Recording Arts

Overview

Programme Overview

The Bachelor of Recording Arts is an opportunity to deepen your understanding of the audio and music industries.

Much like the Diploma in Audio Engineering (which constitutes the first year of the degree), the second and third years are highly practical, involving hands-on experience right from the start, and workplace scenarios where you will learn technical and operative skills, project workflow and management, research skills, documentation and communication with clients and other industry professionals.  The degree provides the opportunity to collaborate with student film practitioners in a unique interdisciplinary creative hub, and culminates in individualised capstone creative projects.

You will meet high profile creative industry professionals up close in small workshops and seminars who give an insight into their perspectives, knowledge and experience.  As well as focussing on further development of music production skills, the programme includes relevant aspects of cultural studies, business management and legal matters.

This degree opens the way to the highest levels of academic education (Master's and PhD).

  • Diploma graduates interested in enhancing their creative production skills
  • Those seeking to broaden their engagement with the wider creative industries
