Course Content

UAL Ext. Diploma in Creative Media & Technology - Multimedia L3

A course intended for anyone with an interest in the creative media industry, particularly in Print & Publishing, Website Design and Journalism. The work that makes up the course is mostly practical, with some theoretical analysis and the planning and production of various different medium pieces using industry standard processes and software.

Students will learn the fundamentals of video production, magazine design, website production and the practical techniques behind them in the first year, with team-based assignments challenging them to produce original film publicity materials, a magazine mock-up and a full website. The second year has students move on to more in depth projects with a greater degree of autonoma and critical analysis, where they study social campaigns and how to create effective marketing materials using their skillset. Both years will finish with a Final Major Project, a chance for every student to choose and create their own original project, making use of the specialised skills they have learnt.

There is a heavy focus on developing your critical understanding or audience requirements, with opportunities to practice targeted marketing ideas throughout the course. In addition, students will have the chance to work to live briefs from external clients and develop a portfolio of work that will take them in to university or the industry.
