MEDIA & DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES

Welcome to the Media & Digital Technologies department


What’s it all about?

TV. Radio. Online streaming. Netflix. Snapchat. Facebook. Instagram. Films. Xbox. Any of those sound familiar to you?

Digital media is everywhere these days, you can watch films on your phone and listen to the radio on the TV, and technology is endlessly evolving. Who knows what will come next? In order for things to keep developing, we need more technicians, more developers, more engineers, more journalists, more film-makers, and more people to run these media channels.

Is it for me?

If you're the first person called when there's a technical issue with your mum's laptop, the wireless has gone at home, or even when you've got to help out your nan because she's decided to join the 21st century, you may find one of our IT courses of use. If you have a knack for all things technical, and want to understand the wider context of how technology is important in the business world, come and learn a bit more from people who really know their stuff.

Maybe you're mad about movies, TV or video games. All of these things are so important in society, and have a massive impact on people's lives. If you want to learn more about media, and start to pursue a career in one of the areas, our media and games courses can teach you all you need to know about special equipment, software, techniques and general skills needed in your chosen discipline.  

You will be taught in our state-of-the-art media hub, including our high-quality TV studio with green screen, post-production gallery and Apple Mac suites.

If you’re looking to tap into the gaming world, join us in looking at concepts behind games design with the opportunity to take on a work placement with the likes of Ubisoft, get involved with pre-release games testing and have a go at creating your own, from concept to testing.

What will I do?

If it is Information Technology you are interested in, learn both the business and technical elements of IT from Web Development to Networking with specialisation in Application Development or IT Technician pathways supported by the relevant industry experiences with companies like Mirus IT.

Media courses cover projects such as making short films, learning how to use different software, editing, and much more. You will learn to work creatively and practically in groups, and how to take on different roles in the media.

If you've ever wanted to have a go at creating your own game, our courses will take you from concept and artwork design, to coding and publishing.

You’ll be taught in a variety of ways and be given the opportunity to expand your knowledge through “live projects” commissioned in-house from different college departments, and from external companies, such as live studio-based TV shows, IT development projects or games production companies.

What can I do next?

The great thing about media and technical qualifications is that the skills you gain and experiences you have are very transferable, leaving your options of what to do next wide open.  You could go on to continue your education with a University course or an alternative Higher Education option in any related field, such as Games Development, Computing or Media Production.

You could seek out an apprenticeship or an intership at somewhere like a software development company, or maybe a working film studio.

You could also step straight into a role, using the experience and skills you have gained to kick start your career.
