    Apparently you have to know more about physics than just sound.

    Usually yes you'll need either physics or a BTEC course that includes sound physics/acoustics content.

    How strict a course is will depend on the course - http://www.surrey.ac.uk/undergraduat...ing-tonmeister is the toughest course to get onto. http://www.uwl.ac.uk/course/music-te...oduction/34750 is less prescriptive but still asks for relevant subjects.

    A lot of universities will offer foundation years to students who don't have the right subject background or mathematical/physics knowledge.
