Make more of your creativity and learn new skills using industry-standard equipment in our practical and exciting workshops.

This course will give you the knowledge and skills you need to produce creative content with a variety of digital and analogue tools.

You’ll undertake practical workshops, with the opportunity for individual instruction, and you’ll attend engaging lectures that will give you an insight into the professional life of creatives.

You’ll also have the chance to work from industry briefs, which will teach you what it’s really like to produce content for real clients.

Students learn to use a range of creative software packages such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, Auditions and 3DS Max on industry-standard PC and Apple computers.

When you finish this course, you will receive a University of Arts London Creative Media Production Level 3 Extended Diploma.

Each year, our students have the opportunity to take part in our End of Year Festival to showcase their work. Take a look at our video of the 2019 show, "Arrival".
