Diploma of Screen and Media

This program provides you with skills-based training in a practical, hands-on environment.

With a focus on all aspects of screen and media - not just standing behind the camera - one of the key features of this program is that in each semester you will direct, produce, write and edit a project. This ensures you develop a strong portfolio and will make you highly employable upon graduation.

  • concept development
  • storytelling
  • pre-production
  • production
  • post-production.

Throughout your studies, we emphasise the importance of industry knowledge, collaboration, team building and professionalism.

You must successfully complete the Diploma of Screen and Media before progressing to the Advanced Diploma of Screen and Media (Screen).
