Diploma in Broadcast Media
The Diploma in Broadcast Media Programme aims to produce the next generation of highly versatile moving image creatives for a variety of media-related industries, both in Singapore and around the world. The programme will successfully prepare students for job roles in fields such as broadcast television, Internet and mobile technology broadcasting, as well as other emerging media formats, such as VR and 360 degree video production.
The demand for video-related content has never been higher. With the proliferation of cable and satellite television channels, and the exponential growth of the Internet and mobile technology, video content has never been in so much demand, whether it be in the form of in-print ads and commercials, documentaries, music videos, social awareness campaigns, short fiction films, dance and fashion films, or educational and corporate videos. You will be engaged in producing highly creative and exciting collaborative projects, including music, fashion and dance videos, as well as live 4K multi-camera filming and live switching of important events. You will collaborate with other students at the College, including fashion designers, musicians, actors and actresses, dancers, as well as fine and interactive artists, all under one roof.
