Leeds Beckett University: Audio & Acoustics

Institution Leeds Beckett University
Department Art, Architecture and Design
Study type Taught


The role of acoustics in the built environment and the impact of sound and noise on society is a growing area of research and practice. As part of this course, you’ll: • Understand acoustic design and practice as a vital component in environments where creative industries function • Recognise the intrinsic relationship between audio systems and the environments in which they operate • Develop a broad understanding of the behaviour of sound in all scenarios • Build technical and practical skills in the measurement, evaluation and design of audio systems and acoustic environments • Explore the areas of interfacing, interactivity and spatial audio • Practise listening to audio systems and acoustic environments and develop your ability to complete their set up and evaluation independently

Put your knowledge into practice The Leeds School of Arts Building features a plethora of audio systems and acoustic environments to experience and discuss. State-of-the-art acoustics facilities will enable you to put key measurement standards and guidance into practice in professional-level environments. The delivery of this course in a busy city centre environment will allow plenty of opportunity to get out of the classroom and to experience and make measurements of real-world noise problems.

Regional industry links The presence of ITV and the BBC in Leeds, combined with the recent relocation of Channel 4, provides local employment opportunities both for specialist freelancers and small businesses. You’ll also have easy access to Media City, in Salford, a hub of audio, visual and broadcast activity.
