Radio - Bachelor

The bachelor’s programme in Radio is for you who want to become a radio journalist with stories to tell but also narrators in a more general artistic sense. Main language of instruction is Swedish.

A radio journalist or producer works in a variety of genres, from daily journalism to more lengthy programmes. Examples of areas of work include cultural and current affairs, programmes for children and youth, and documentaries. The work can also involve directing or producing radio theatre or working with “new platforms” like podcasts or web-based programmes. Other fields might be sound installations or audio walks.


The Bachelor’s Programme in Radio

We begin by reviewing the cornerstones of radio narrative through short exercises, continuing up to more elaborate programmes. Throughout the training you will be learning to find your own style and expression, to listen to yourself. Who am I as a narrator? Where do I stand in the world? How do I formulate my ideas and idea processes? How do I push my ideas?

You will be given opportunities to experiment with form and expression to find new approaches to your narrative. We will also study how different genres of narrative meet in transcending boundaries.

The programme is based on creative radio storytelling and focuses on personal engagement and expression, combined with performance skill. The goal is to educate radio narrators with knowledge and proficiency in different journalistic and artistic disciplines.

  • Application and tuition fees

    If you are a Swedish citizen or a citizen of another EU or EEA country you are not required to pay application or tuition fees. Some other groups are also exempt from the requirement to pay application and study fees.

    A few years ago Sweden introduced application and tuition fees for higher education. The level of the study fees depends on which course/programme they are for, and the level is set in order to cover the actual costs of the course/programme in question.

    If you are required to pay an application fee, we need to have received your payment by the last date for applications. The application fee is SEK 900. If you are required to pay the application fee and we have not received your payment by the last date for applications, we will not process your application.
