Why Should You Take This Course?
The Creative Media Diploma course gives students the opportunity to develop both academic and practical skills in a vocationally focused holistic study of media. Throughout the two-year course learners will cultivate a range of analytical, theoretical and technical skills relevant to working practices in the Creative Media industry.
Students will develop skills in the following areas:
How will I be assessed?
The course is 100% internally assessed (no external examination) and would be studied alongside additional subjects (A Level or single year vocational course). Students will also be expected to undertake a relevant work experience placement which the college can help to organise.
Are there any special expenses?
Students should be prepared to invest in resources (printing credit, props, costumes) for their productions as well as a pair of over-ear headphones with a 3.5m jack. It would also be beneficial to own a memory storage device (flash drive, external hard drive) to store work on. There will be opportunities for students to attend various trips and workshops that may entail an additional cost. Students will also be expected to carry out a short work experience project that may incur small expenses.
What could I do next?
The course is designed to cater for a multitude of different media aspirations and disciplines with an emphasis on transferable skills as well as project specific expertise. The overall aim is preparing learners for a career in the creative media industry. Our students have gone on to creative media relevant university courses, apprenticeships and full-time employment.
