It's all about entertainment! Creative technologies such as special effects and sound engineering help create exciting visual and auditory experiences in TV, the movies and music. Live events need organisers, producers, directors, performing artists and promoters. Our courses will give you the practical experience you need for a head-start in the dynamic and in-demand entertainment, creative and media industries.
