Location Sound Recording for Film and Television Diploma

This 15-month Postgraduate Diploma - the only one of its kind in the UK - has been developed in response to industry demands for suitably trained production sound professionals.

Taught exclusively by practising professionals, the course aims to give students high quality training in the theory and practice of recording sound for picture both on location and in our state-of-the-art 4K multi-camera television studio, as well as Fisher Boom training and experience of in-studio music recording and post-production techniques. Students will collaborate with those in other specialisms to make several films – with all production costs met by the School.

The course offers an unrivalled opportunity to learn the practical skills required for a career in this field, and covers location sound recording techniques for drama and documentary, sound production for multi-camera television and equipment maintenance and problem solving.

The course starts in September with a term of intensive online workshops and exercises that prepare students to record sound on shoots with MA students in the following Spring and Summer terms. Alongside location and studio shoots for documentary, fiction films and television productions, the programme of workshops and tuition continues throughout the course.

This course is industry recognised by ScreenSkills, the industry-led skills body for the UK's screen-based industries, and carries the ScreenSkills Select quality-mark which indicates courses best suited to prepare students for a career in the screen industries.

The NFTS wants to encourage applications from the brightest and best talent out there, whatever your background so we have made scholarship funding available for this course for UK students.

The next course intake will be in September 2022.
