Foundation Degree Screen Audio

Layer specialist sound composition, recording and editing skills upon a theoretical context with our Sound for Film & Games Foundation Degree. This practical course will ensure you develop a well-rounded understanding of sound as you create sound for the film and games industries, making tracks that spark success.


About the course

Study specialist modules that encompass the diverse disciplines within audio such as composition skills, sound recording and sound design. You will produce audio for computer games, moving images and apps, creating vibrant tracks that strike a chord with listeners and engage them on a deep emotional level.

You’ll leverage Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs) and Digital Audio Editors (DAEs) to compose non-linear music and synchronise sound to the moving image. You’ll learn to edit midi files, tweak sound patterns and events and layer sounds to convey emotion. You’ll also acquire a theoretical understanding of audio and industry best practices.

We place a strong focus on personal development so you’ll identify areas for improvement as well as a personal area of interest that you’ll explore further, in-line with your career aspirations.

We will continue to follow government guidelines to ensure the safety of all our students and staff and have put in place additional safety measures, including the way we deliver your course.

For Semester 1, we plan to deliver your course through a mixture of online and face to face tuition and we will review this as Government guidelines change in response to COVID-19 developments. 

Under the present guidelines, we plan to deliver your course 15% online and 85% face to face. We will timetable, where possible, so that you come into the University Centre Leeds for a whole day and you will be in a bubble with your fellow students on your course.

Face to face contact will be delivered following guidelines on social distancing and increased health and safety measures.  You will be made fully aware of the current measures in place and be expected to follow the guidance issued.
