Audio Post Production Course Curriculum

Our Advanced Diploma in Audio Post Production for Film and TV is a 5-month long part-time course, taught across a 2-day per week timetable with further study and practical time expected on top. The course follows the workflow of a real industry project, from recording through to editing and mixing a variety of material.

The curriculum is made up of 14 weeks of teaching and is structured so that each week you’ll focus on a specific topic within audio post-production with each topic building on the knowledge and skills from the previous week.  Much of your time will be spent in our dedicated post-production studio alongside classes in our new teaching spaces at Angel.

It’s a unique experience in so many ways, the location, the calibre of guest lecturers and access to Abbey Road Studios for classes is pretty amazing. There aren't many places you get to record a full orchestra!
