Nick Grimshaw is studying set design at university.
The 34-year-old DJ recently started going to Central Saint Martins in London two days a week in the hope of nabbing a job in music production.
The move comes after Nick jumped ship from the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show to the Drivetime slot after six years.
He told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column: "I’m starting a course in set design.
"I’m going back to uni but not forever.
"I want to learn how to be a set designer.
"I want to do live music production.
"I did that before radio so now I basically need to go to uni to get all of the terminology and the language of it.
"I’ll do it at Central Saint Martins on Fridays and Saturdays.
"I had to go and buy my pencils and scalpel and a lightbox to trace.
"I’ve been interning for a bit on and off but it’s always been an interest and a love of mine."
The presenter previously studied media studies at the University of Liverpool, but he didn’t pass his exams in the third year.
Not only has his new schedule allowed him to study, but Nick recently found love again with new boyfriend Meshach Henry.
The pair met earlier this year, and Nick reportedly took the dancer on a romantic break to Oxfordshire to celebrate his 22nd two weekends ago.
A source said: "Nick has found dating quite tough in recent years because of his job.
"But he met Meshach – who’s called Mesh by his pals — a few months ago and although it’s still early days they are really enjoying their time together. They are taking things easy and not putting any pressure on anything.
"Nick really likes him, and his friends are thrilled he has found someone who makes him happy."
Nick previously admitted he hoped his new role would improve his personal life as the early starts had meant sacrificing romance.
He said: "I think I will have more time to put my life first. I have committed to this show, especially the last year, and I have put my head down. But now I can go for dates with people and the new show will help.
"I have been trying to date people, but you don’t want to ‘day date’ and even two weeks ago, I went on a date and then he said, ‘Do you want to go to the cinema, it’s at 8.20pm?’
"And I was thinking, ’8.20, arrggh the film won’t start until like ten-to-nine so it won’t finish before 11′ so home and asleep at midnight and that is if I fall asleep straight away."
When he took over the coveted job from Chris Moyles in 2012, Nick admitted it consumed his life.
He added: "It does send you a bit mad and sort of becomes your life, because everything you are watching and consuming each day you are trying to produce content for the next morning, because you can’t do it before 5am."
