We've got everything you need to make that dream a reality

Media is a fast growing industry in the UK and particularly in Dorset, with an expected job growth of 8.6% locally.* Nationally the creative industries generate more than £100bn a year for the UK economy and employ more than 2m people.**

We deliver hands-on and practical media experience to ensure that you leave the College fully qualified with the experience and skills that employers are looking for.

Whether you’d like to specialise in video, photography, graphics, animation or special effects for film, you’ll develop a wide range of skills with us. All of our courses are digital and interactive, and you’ll get real work experience, working to live briefs from local companies. You might be making a film on location, writing a script, or creating your own animation.

Our outstanding facilities include a photography studio, digital design suites and a green screen room for special effects filming.

Some of our past students have gone on to have success as:

  • TV and radio presenters
  • Designers
  • Photographers
  • Film-makers
  • Event organisers
  • Animators
  • Producers
  • Camera crew
