Entry Requirements

  • In order to achieve the Academy of Sound Engineering Bachelor’s Degree in Sound Engineering Technology, students are required to pass all the modules/learning units in the Degree programme in full, both theory and practical where applicable.
  • In order to pass a module, students are required to pass both the theory and practical portions of each, where applicable.
  • For each module/learning unit, the final mark is made up of a combination of assessments. Please refer to Section 15 below for a complete breakdown of assessments per module/learning unit.
  • Weightings for the various types of assessments differ for each module/ learning unit.
  • The pass mark for theoretical assessments is 50%, and the pass mark for practical assessments is 70% (with the exception of Pro Tools, where the pass mark is 80%).
  • In the case of Pro Tools modules, students are required to pass the final Avid assessment in order to pass the learning unit.
  • In all cases, the summative assessments must be attempted in order to pass the module and a minimum of 70% of all assessments must be attempted per module/learning unit.
  • Students may only progress to second year status if at least 85 of the first year credits have been successfully achieved and all core modules have been successfully passed.
  • Students may only progress to third year status if at least 85 of the second year credits have been successfully achieved and all core modules have been successfully passed.
  • Credits may only be carried across for one academic year.
