Intensive and specialised, this programme is designed to further the development of your conceptual and contextual understanding of sound arts practice and its discourse. You will be encouraged to adopt a personal and distinctive approach to your work in building your portfolio, and will be engaged in practical and theoretical research that develops your creative and critical competence to an advanced level. This course is taught at London College of Communication, at Elephant & Castle, part of University of the Arts London (UAL).

What can you expect? 

The course includes a strong taught component combined with ample opportunities for practical work. You will be able to extend your portfolio within an academic context, engage in theoretical and practical research, develop your creative and critical skills, explore personal areas of interest in sound arts and engage in practice-based research. 

The aim of the course is to facilitate individual practice and guide you towards a professional career as a sound artist or into research. The course culminates in a curated show and a public symposium where you will get the opportunity to present your work and research to an audience. 

An advantage of studying at London College of Communication is the opportunities for collaboration with students from other disciplines, such as film students, both inside and outside the college. There is also an extensive programme of visiting speakers and performers, and students are extremely active in promoting their work. 

The sound arts department is constantly developing new links with other institutions and other disciplines and is committed to extending the boundaries of this developing discipline.
