You must have creative flair and a technical mind, as you will need to learn to use a variety of equipment to a high standard, and experiment with different editing styles and techniques. You must be able to work well in a team, adapting to take on different roles as required.

Is it for me?

You will gain many transferable skills throughout your course, meaning your next steps could lead you down many different paths. You could move on to study a higher education course, either at MK College, or at university. You could choose from TV production, animation, journalism, and many more. You could also seek an apprenticeship in the sector, meaning you’ll be able to earn a wage whilst still learning and gaining new qualifications. You could also use the contacts you’ve gained throughout your course to head straight into the industry, as a junior researcher, runner, or camera operator.

If you are aiming towards studying at Level 3, you will need at least four GCSEs at minimum grade 4/C, including English and Maths. However, these requirements and any others specific to the course will be discussed at interview.
