- Our typical offer is:
in a subject related area. All applicants should be able to demonstrate practical and critical and conceptual skills.
- Students requiring the necessary practical skills are encouraged to attend undergraduate modules in radio or the Radio Summer School.
- We also require three passes at GCSE grade C or above, which must include Mathematics and English Language, or an equivalent qualification, for example; a minimum of Level 2 Key Skills in Communication and Application of Number. If you have studied for a new GCSE for which you will be awarded a numerical grade then you will need to achieve a grade 4 or above.
Applicants whose first language is not English must achieve a minimum IELTS band score of 6.5, with no less than 5.5 in any element.
Postgraduates are highly employable and, on average, earn more than individuals whose highest qualification is an undergraduate degree. On completing this course you will be equipped for roles in the radio industry, and also throughout the broader media industry.
Recent Sunderland graduates have moved into jobs at a variety of radio stations and companies, including BBC Radio 1, 6Music, 5live, BBC Radio Drama, Sun FM, Metro Radio and BBC Newcastle.
Our former students are also employed at radio stations in Europe, USA and Australia.
