Creative Sound Design (CSD) Programmes

Creative Sound Design offers a broad selection of possible career paths in the media industry, such as sound recordist, sound effect designer, Foley artist and composer. No matter which direction your career takes, you will benefit greatly from knowing how all the others relate to you.

Our students have access to the highest standard of facilities inside and outside lecture times, giving them the best possible opportunity to develop those key skills and gain as much experience as possible. Our new state-of-the-art SSL Duality studio enables us to teach the latest and most advanced techniques currently being used in post production, game audio and commercial studios.

ACM’s Creative Sound Design tutors work on a wide variety of styles and a broad range of subjects including location recording, composition, surround mixing and sampling, and media business among others. The result is that students can be assured of experiencing all areas of the sound industry in one place.

With our tutors currently working in the sound and music industry, as well as teaching regularly at ACM, all career advice and individual support is guaranteed to be relevant and current. This kind of advice is on-going, through lectures and tutorials throughout the length of the programme.
