Awarded by the Institute of Acoustics, our course aims to equip you with a thorough understanding of the nature of noise and the ways in which it can be controlled in the environment, the workplace and in buildings. Extending over 12 months, our course is taught through lectures, laboratory classes and via our web-based Virtual Learning Environment. There is an emphasis on relating the theory of acoustics to the solution of practical noise problems. 

Research Excellence Framework 2014

Research Excellence Framework 2014: 20% of our research in the Public Health, Health Services and Primary Care unit is world leading or internationally excellent.

Enhance your understanding of acoustics and the way noise can be controlled in the workplace, in buildings and in the wider environment.

We offer the highly-regarded Institute of Acoustics (IoA) Diploma and the opportunity on successful completion to progress to a masters award by studying two research modules. Taught through lectures, laboratory classes and via our Virtual Learning Environment, emphasis will be given to studying the theory of acoustics and how this knowledge can be applied to develop practical solutions to noise problems.

Both courses are part-time with attendance on campus limited to half a day per week. The IoA Diploma will enable you to work as an acoustics specialist and it can enhance existing careers in construction, architecture or music technology. Undertaking the MSc will ensure your professional practice is informed by the very latest research, and your qualification will be well regarded both here and abroad.
