Our Organisation

Unlike many student radio stations around the UK, The Cat Radio is not operated as a society and we are not operated by the students’ union, although we do share a close relationship with our union. This is to allow the station to be used in conjunction with with our students’ courses as well as an extra opportunity outside of study. Due to this, much of the content you will be hearing on air will also be used for assessment!
