About City of Westminster College
The School of Sound Engineering within City of Westminster College has offered courses in Sound Engineering since 1981. We developed the City & Guilds of London Institute's 1820 Sound Engineering course and continue to offer both City & Guilds and BTEC/EdExcel courses in Sound Engineering and Music Technology.
Many of our teaching staff have worked in industry at the highest level. Our teaching methods, both in theory and practice, are dedicated to the needs of industry. Our aim is to provide our students with the skills they need to work in the Sound Engineering industry or in Music Technology.
We regularly consult representatives of top level industry to make sure our courses continue to offer the best preparation for our students.
You are passionate about Sound Engineering and Music Technology equipment and techniques. You might be interested in music, but you could also be interested in speech and sound effects.
