Is this course for you?

This course is for anyone that has a passion for Radio, Television or Music.  The majority of our students are 17 – 28 years old, but if you’ve had some life experience, been travelling, want a change of career, then it could be for you too. The course has a large hands-on and practical element to it, so could suit you if you’re the type of person who just wants to get on with it rather than sit around and read about it.
