Student testimonial, why study Media?
Last year I chose to do Level 2 Media. It was a very fun course because we got to go out and take pictures with cameras, and explored different locations. It was really good. We learnt lots of new skills like how to use Photoshop and how to video edit. For the lessons we had two teachers. Both teachers were kind and helpful and also funny. The work was challenging in a good way. I enjoyed it very much. Azmat Year 13
