Radio department

From announcing to compiling on-air news, and from researching to recording and producing items for broadcast, the Radio department teaches performance skills as well as radio station operations and management.

The study of radio at AUT places equal emphasis on creativity and theory. We enable students to gain the critical thinking and understanding required to place those skills within radio’s broader context.

Student radio

AUT's student radio station, Static 88.1FM, is run by third-year students in the Bachelor of Communication Studies in Radio.
