Book Before 12th Jan and Save £1,000 on PB’s Radio Broadcasting Diploma

The radio industry is the oldest but most agile of the broadcast media – and right now it’s booming. If you want to break into this hugely exciting world, there’s no better place to study than Point Blank – and no better time. We’re offering a huge £1,000 off our Radio Broadcasting Diploma, plus £500 of free equipment until 12 January. To claim the deal, simply enter the code 1000RAD upon enrolment.

The course is Cert HE validated by Middlesex University and offers a comprehensive, 360-degree education in all things radio. You’ll be learning how to present and produce, how to build a station identity and learn the business side inside out. Crucially, in an industry that thrives on innovation and fresh ideas, the Radio Broadcasting Diploma looks to the future of the medium, playing close attention to current and future trends. Take our current crop of students’ recent masterclass with Shan McGinley, who besides starting SISTER Radio is the face of Snapchat as a presenter and works in content creation for Nike. In short, if you want to ensure your first steps towards your career in radio are as strong as they can be, this is the course you need.

But we would say that, wouldn’t we? So how do we prove it? Simple: when it comes to our radio alumni finding success in the industry, our track record is second to none. Whether it’s institutions like BBC Radio 1 or 1Xtra, taste-making stations such as Rinse FM or the new generation of cutting-edge, online platforms led by NTS and Radar, Point Blank graduates haven’t just bagged roles within the top tier of the broadcasting world, they are helping to redefine its future.

Did you know the founder of Radar Radio, Ollie Ashley, is a former PB student? Or that Radio 1 favourites Gemma Cairney, Monki and Mista Jam cut their teeth at our London School? That’s before we even get to the connections we help nourish and build – both Josh Dowler and Seb Hodgkiss have taken posts as musical assistants for B.Traits after studying with us. You see, we don’t just help you get a foot in the door, we ensure those first steps are the best you can take. Don’t take our word for it – the above video, featuring some of our brightest alums and insider tips, pretty much speaks for itself.

The reason for our students’ success? Firstly, all of our instructors are proven professionals with enviable track records. Their knowledge, gathered at some of the biggest and most respected stations, ensures we track the newest developments in the medium and equip our students with skills to succeed at the highest level. Secondly, because we believe in giving our students the very best practical foundation for their career – including all the kit needed to get a head start. On top of unlimited practice time in the Radio Practice studio, students on our Radio Broadcasting Diploma each receive a pair of Aiaiai TMA 2 professional studio headphones, a copy of professional editing software Adobe Audition and a Tascam digital recorder. To buy all this gear in the shops would cost £500, but PB students get it for free. Find out more here.

If you’re thinking about studying radio with us, there’s no better time: in addition to our flagship Radio Broadcasting Diploma we now also offer a whole range of shorter courses which give you the option of drilling down into either the presenting and production aspects of radio. What are you waiting for? Whether you want to be the next B.Traits or harbour dreams of starting your own agenda-setting online station, we can help you get there.
