University Radio is part of the Broadcast Radio family which has been providing radio related equipment, software and services to the higher education sector for more than 18 years during which time we have installed radio studios and provided playout services to many of the UK's largest higher education establishments. Our deep links with the broadcast radio industry coupled with our rich heritage in education enable us to provide professional, cost effective solutions that will prepare your students for a career in radio.

From radio presentation to broadcast journalism, whatever the focus of the courses you wish to offer, we have a solution that combines equipment and software used in the industry with the practical requirements of delivering engaging and inspiring courses.
