This course helps you to build your media knowledge through practical experimentation and written projects.

You will study a range of media such as digital video, cinema, advertising and factual, as well as learn skills in filming, editing, design, and interactive technology in this one-year Diploma in Media.

This course can be taken as the UAL Level 2 Award or the more advanced UAL Level 2 Diploma in Creative Media Production and Technology.

This qualification is delivered by an experienced, specialist team, backed by an extensive range of facilities and equipment. From specialist cameras to green screen work, social media, and basic marketing techniques, this course offers you a great introduction to the world of modern media.

This study programme is perfect for those first steps into understanding media and production techniques. Its aim is to progress onto the Level 3 Creative Media courses within Activate and, eventually, the media industries.

GCSE maths and GCSE English complete this programme, offering students a second chance to get those valuable qualifications, with a one-year programme timetabled to run alongside the media course.

You will learn a range of skills that will help you produce ideas, undertake research, give presentations, interview people, complete production paperwork, organise productions and work as part of a production team.

The course is 100% coursework-based, featuring both written and practical assignments, both of which are completed alone and in groups. Written assignments include studying media jobs, observing and analysing existing media like adverts and films, scriptwriting, planning, scheduling, and understanding film audiences.
