The School of Creative Industries at the University of Gloucestershire provides industry-standard, specialist facilities at our Park campus in Cheltenham. Our studios and production spaces form an interdisciplinary hub where students can commission, collaborate and create exciting work together.

We are proud of our range of industry-accredited degrees in film, television, music, sound and journalism which ensure that our students graduate with the knowledge and skills required by industry. Every year our students complete over 4,000 work placements and internships at industry giants such as EMI, Universal Music, ITV, Warner Bros and the BBC.

Our students are thinkers and doers who want to learn about the creative industries and want to acquire the skills to thrive in a creative economy. Students are rigorous about their ideas and how to put them into practice; exploring their creativity while critically reflecting upon the history, theory and practice of their subject specialisms.

Our Music and Sound degree courses cover all aspects of the creative sector; from singer-songwriter, producer, media composer, performer, mixing and mastering engineer, live sound engineer through to artist management, event management and promotion, marketing and communications, publishing and rights management, along with creative enterprise and start-up development. Our staff have a huge range of combined business experience including working with the BBC, Universal, Sony, Virgin, Orange and O2.

Students work on projects in our industry-standard Music and Sound production spaces, including recording studios, 22.2 immersive audio lab, Soho-style dubbing theatre, pre-production labs equipped with Pro Tools, Logic, Ableton Live and MAX/MSP, rehearsal rooms, along with our editing suites, and film, television and radio studios. As a result, Music and Sound students establish competitive portfolios of practical projects and experiences, including music production, soundtrack composition and sound design, events and festival production, community music practice, audio production for immersive and VR environments.
