BDes Sound for Moving Image is an undergraduate Honours degree taught at Years 3 & 4. Students studying Sound Design, Sound Engineering, or related courses in Further Education or Community Colleges can apply to enter or transfer directly into year 3 of this degree programme.
Students begin by recording and constructing soundscapes, then branch out to create original films, and progressing onto interactive audio-visual installations. The fundamentals are taught in Year 3: stereo sound production, fixed frame video, and interactive systems.
In the final year students engage with more complex practices, including multi-channel spatial audio and 360 film. Students also complete projects on music for picture and a major self-directed sound project of the student's own choosing.
