Students engage in real placements across reputable and established companies including major recording studios, commercial radio and TV networks, content production and design studios, major labels, festivals and major sporting events. 

We are particularly proud to work with many outstanding charities, not for profit, social and cultural  organisations in the internship mix. Our students are enriched and humbled by the experience gained on these projects.
