Why Study Radio Production with us?

From the outset, you will be broadcasting in teams, in small groups and individually, if you so choose, – and not just in lecture times either. Our radio station – The Cat Radio – is at the heart of campus social life, and is on air and online 24/7. You will have access to the studios till late in the evenings and over the weekends. Your listeners are in the hall next door, all over the country and on the other side of the world.

You will learn in excellent facilities and be taught by staff who are passionate about radio.
