“I am a 40-year-old mature student doing the “Advanced Certificate In TV And Film Production” at Kinsale College. The most unique aspects of the course are its flexibility in terms of the freedom you have to structure your own workday as opposed to being in a highly formalized, lecture heavy environment, all day access to editing suites and computer time and the opportunity to engage in additional multimedia and animation training. You have access to your own individual I Mac all day everyday and can choose when you wish to film or edit once you adhere to your assignment deadlines. This uniquely free environment with access to my course teacher whenever needed for guidance allowed me to excel by letting me to design my own path of learning. I achieved distinctions in all 8 First Year modules. I highly recommend this unique film course.”
“I am delighted I took the step of returning to education. I worked in a business environment for many years and was looking for something new. I wanted a course that would both widen work opportunities and develop a new skill. TV & Film fitted the bill perfectly. I have been recording home movies for a long time but this is a whole new world. The tuition is structured but personalised with one to one guidance as needed. There is also an opportunity for valuable work experience. I could not recommend this course highly enough.”
