Music and sound design is a field that mixes the artistic and the technical to produce the vital ingredient for a range of media. On the one hand, it's a discipline of creative composition and emotional interpretation. On the other, it's about harnessing the latest technology and studio techniques to produce compelling music and sound content. Our course offers the chance to learn both sides, letting you explore your creative passions while equipping you for a career in the fast-paced digital arts and media sector.
The School of Digital Arts aims to prepare you for life in the creative sector. It's home to a dynamic community that spans skills and approaches, creating a space for collaboration and experimentation. And, as well as the human element, this is a space for technical skills, equipped with industry-standard tools and technology.
More than a purpose-built school, we also have the perfect setting. Manchester is a city at the forefront of the creative and digital sector in the UK (second only to London), home to a wide variety of broadcasters, creative agencies and media businesses. More importantly, it's also one of the world's musical capitals - much like Detroit and a handful of others. This is a city known around the world for its thriving, distinctive music scene.
Study with us and you'll have the chance to tap into this vibrant city, making the most of our links with Scruff of the Neck, Louder Than War and other key promoters, labels and venues, not to mention youth music organisations, DJ educators, schools and cultural producers. With the chance to learn from, and connect with, these key figures and organisations, we offer the chance to study in a city that provides an ideal starting point for building your network, developing your experience and starting your career.
