UAL Creative Media Production


Elstree UTC are excited to be accredited to offer the UAL Level 3 Diploma in Creative Media.  The course, designed and assessed by University Arts London, is a Project based qualification that complements the ethos and design of our college.  After a skills based induction in the first year students will be encouraged to develop their independence, confidence, technological skillset and understanding of production through a range of projects.  Over the course of two years learners will work on projects that will help them achieve the UAL Diploma and prepare them for further learning in the Creative Media Industry.  Alongside the opportunity to work on live briefs set by ESA, students will have the opportunity to work independently, and in groups, on projects in the mediums of screenwriting, music video, television advertising, online media, animation, short film development and documentary.


Through following this course learners will develop an awareness that any media production operates within limitations regarding time, facilities, personnel and budget. They will learn how to identify the requirements of a media production, and how to plan for the provision of those requirements. They will also learn that successful pre-production involves ensuring that all the various elements for production are in the right place at the right time. Additionally, the work will enable learners to conduct production risk assessments and develop an awareness of the rights and responsibilities of producers and other media professionals. Most importantly Learners will be developing skills by undertaking personalised Projects.
