Course summary

Please note that due to COVID-19, this course will initially be delivered via a blended learning approach, which may include face-to-face learning in the classroom, remote learning off-campus and digital learning. When delivery is taking place on-campus, there will be reduced student numbers and physical distancing measures in place.

This exciting course will provide students with an industry standard grounding in media and communications, with a specialist focus on knowledge and skills for broadcast and content creation.

Enhanced by opportunities to engage in live projects for real life clients, this qualification is the vocational ‘industry ready’ route for anyone who wants to work in audio visual production.
