Games and Broadcast Media Level 2 Diploma - UAL at Stoke on Trent College

Course description

This course is designed for students who want to progress to our Level 3 Games or Broadcast Media course.  Are you interested in not only playing video games, but in how they work, and how technologies such as iphone, social networks and motion-sensing controllers are changing the games industry and have an interest in the world of film/TV or Radio Broadcasting?  If so, then this course is an ideal way for you to develop your knowledge and practical skills.  The course will help you to develop the knowledge and technical skills required to progress to level 3 in Computer Games Design or onto other Creative Media Production courses.  You will  gain a sold foundation in media and computer games principles and technologies, will explore a range of software and techniques as well as learning how to develop your own ideas and designs.

Entry requirements

4 GSCE's grade D (new grade 3) or above.  Level 1 or Diploma, appropriate NVQ Level 1, or another relevant Level 1 or Foundation qualification.  You will have a pre-induction interview/assessment to make sure this is the right level for you.

Assessment

This course is assessed by continual assessment, and learners will need to research, plan and produce practical work.  All assignments have interim assessment points, when the lecturer assesses the work and shows the student how to improve their grades.   Students requiring any support in producing written work, organising themselves or managing their time can get the support of one of our mentors.   All student work is moderated by the awarding body.

Future opportunities

On successful completion of this course you will be able to progress to the Level 3 Extended Diploma in Computer Games Design.  Alternatively you could progress to one of our other Creative Media or Art & Design courses such as Graphic Design and Digital Imaging or Broadcast Media (Film/TV and Radio), depending on where your interests lie.
