Should one pursue an education in audio?
There is no straight forward answer to this other than to say that you need to seriously consider the opportunities that you will be aﬀorded. Would you have the same networking opportunities if you didn’t do the course? Will you receive a rich and rounded mentorship away from the structure of an institution? You are quite likely to find that there are as many professional sound engineers that followed an academic route as followed an amazing mentor or mentors within the industry. The decision of which route to take can only be decided by you.
