Opportunities in Audio and Music Technology

Hands-on experience is an essential part of your learning at UWE Bristol which is why we encourage you to get out into the real world and put your skills into practice.

All students get the chance to showcase their work and meet potential employers at the annual Degree Show. Take a look at last year’s entries to see how our students bring their passions and creativity to life.
