Do you ever imagine yourself working in TV, radio, or film?

It is often said that if you can turn your hobby into a job, it becomes the most fulfilling thing in the world. Many people dream of turning their love for photography, sound production, creating videos, or working in film, TV, and radio into a successful career.

In Scotland, there are over 15,000 businesses and more than 70,000 people working in the creative industry. There are also many freelancers and students who contribute to this exciting field, and the demand for creative talents is increasing.

Scotland now has about 15% of all the film and television production spaces outside of London and the South East. With plans in place to build even more facilities, this means there are lots of exciting opportunities for talented people in this industry.

Exciting Creative Media Courses

At Fife College, they offer a wide range of courses for people interested in creative media. These courses can be taken part-time or full-time, and they cover subjects like Media and Communications, Screen Production, Visual Communications, Sound Production, Photography, and Broadcast Media.

The College also provides opportunities for hands-on experience through work placements with local employers, and their lecturers are experts in the industry, giving students everything they need to succeed and become valuable contributors and producers within the creative industry sector.

The College has recently invested over £250,000 in additional state-of-the-art digital and audio-visual equipment to create a new Media Production Hub at their Glenrothes campus. The Hub is equipped with all of the latest digital equipment, including new Apple Mac Studio workstations, as well as 4K cameras, high-end microphones, and industry-standard software.

If you want to take your creative media studies to a higher level, Fife College can help you with that too. After completing an HNC (which is equivalent to the first year of a degree) or an HND (equivalent to the second year) you can progress to a creative degree course at one of the College's many partner universities. So, if you are thinking about degree study, this means that there is no need for you to move away to university, or commit to a four-year degree course. Instead, you can study locally at your local college, taking your degree one year at a time, and gain a recognised qualification for each year of study.
