What our students say...

“I chose Creative Digital Media because I always wanted to work in media but was unsure what area I wanted to go into. I started an on-line blog and enjoyed designing and building my own content. I wanted to learn more and found that this course was everything I was looking for. There’s a state of the art recording and photography studio on campus with three dedicated rooms with Macs so we are always working to industry standard and using the best equipment.The course has something for everyone and has a wide variety within modules so you will never be bored. The course is mostly continuous assessment so it is great for hands on learners. If you have any interest in media drop in to one of ITB’s open days and experience the course first hand.”
