The course is usually timetabled over three days. It is practically based but you will also gain an understanding of how the media industries communicate meanings to their targeted audiences. Practical projects will be taught in our state-of-the-art professional TV studio equipped with 3 multi-cameras, using the latest technologies in film editing such as Final Cut and Adobe Audition for radio production.

    You will study:

    • Research for creative media
    • Video production
    • Audio production

    In the second half of the course you will begin working towards a final major project.

  • Assessment Method

    Assessment is through assignment based work. The emphasis is on practical work, although a certain amount of written work is required. The work is graded into pass, merit and distinction. In order to achieve the diploma you are required to pass all areas of the course.
