The Level 3 Diploma and Extended Diploma in Creative Media Production & Technology are designed to provide students with the knowledge, skills and understanding necessary to access and progress to degree-level study or employment in the media sector.

They provide an opportunity for those who have an interest in media to explore, develop and test their creativity within a qualification structure which is stimulating and demanding and provides a supportive transition from general to more specialised study.

Studying for these qualifications is not time-constrained but will normally be over one year for the Diploma and two years for the Extended Diploma.

The structure of the qualifications, with units linked to provide coherence, will allow students to synthesise newly acquired practical skills with theoretical knowledge and understanding as they explore their aptitude and ambition and the particular characteristics of a broad range of creative media disciplines.

Students will be encouraged to recognise not only the unique characteristics of different disciplines but also the dynamic and potentially innovative relationships between those disciplines.
