Media Studies BTEC

Our Course

The National Extended Certificate in Digital Film and Video Production is an exciting course which will allow students to harness both their academic and creative sides and engage in a course which is predominantly coursework based with an external examination. 

The course will require students to critically analyse media texts, research into audiences and relevant industries and to produce their own texts based on their research, planning, production and post production. 

The Extended Certificate will allow students to explore the varied media and film industries and create moving image texts which they will submit as part of their coursework assessment and that will form the basis of their portfolio which they can use for university degree applications and a career in the media industry.
