Photography, Filmmaking and Multimedia Level 3

The ideal pathway if you want a career in an exciting, ever-changing industry.

What does this course involve?

In your first year, you will explore photography, film making and multimedia before specialising for your career pathway towards your final first year project, and for the remainder of your second year.  

You will learn the fundamentals of how to be a creative multimedia artist, a content creator, influencer and develop skills in managing a range of social media platforms - think Instagram, TikTok, YouTube and more!

Using photography, video, and audio, you will be able to create your own content about what you are interested in; whether it be fashion, music, documentary, products or advertising. You will also learn to shoot and edit films, work with client led briefs and develop advertising campaigns.

You will be able to study in our professional workspaces and photography studio, where you will be taught by established, experienced industry professionals with state-of-the-art equipment. You’ll also have the opportunity to listen to guest speakers who’ve worked in the industry.

There is a strong focus on developing academic and practical skills to enable you to become a media professional in a very competitive and exciting industry. Our students often work and develop professional skills with our external partners who are local and national businesses, charities, and groups.

This course will provide you with the equivalent UCAS points of 3 A Levels and so it is also a great route into university if you wish to progress to higher education!

What qualifications do I need?

4 GCSE's grade C or 4 or above including maths and English, or alternatively, a full level 2 qualification. If you are aged 19 or over you do not need formal qualifications to gain access to study this course.


Assessment will be through a combination of practical, written, and presentation assignments. This is a mainly practical programme using research and written work as supporting evidence and development of knowledge and understanding. Continual assessments occur throughout the course.
