Covering the basic technical skills involved in a variety of creative fields, each short course is designed to provide relevant hands-on skills - taught by teachers who are also successful working creatives.

Each short course is a 10-week single module with no prior learning required. All courses are specifically designed at the beginner level - to provide the perfect option for diving straight into a passion project, upskilling or learning an entirely new skill set.

Stay tuned for the full term 2 line-up coming soon.

Decoration (Introductory)

Decoration is concentrated on furnishing and enhancing a space with objects and materials to make it more aesthetically pleasing for its users. In this module, we get to grips with the decoration process, how we conceptualise, visualise and present our ideas.

Digital Effects (Introductory)

Introducing visual effects and motion graphics can make all the difference to your film work, helping your video content stand above the crowd. In this module, we cover the basics of Adobe After Effects and how it integrates into editing software.

Social Media 

Most of us use social media every day in a very passive way. This course looks at the mechanics of the popular platforms and teaches engagement strategies that drive interaction and build a following. It’s here that you’ll learn how to recognise online habits and characteristics of users as well as build and plan content for both organic and paid campaigns. We’ll also guide you through the processes of analysing data and setting up key performance indicators.

Film & Photography (Introductory)

This photography beginner class is where you’ll learn and gain a solid understanding of DSLR cameras and Adobe Photoshop for post-production. It’s here that you’ll understand how to achieve great looking shots every time by discovering how to enhance and manipulate digital images. You’ll discover the types and functions of digital cameras and lenses as well as delving into the role of movement and framing.

Photography (Advanced)

Understanding light is crucial to photographers and this module builds students’ understanding to an advanced level so they can control and utilise lighting both in the studio and on location, both in-camera and post-production. 

Video Production (Introductory)

Video production teaches you how to establish a workflow for shooting, editing and releasing content using software such as Adobe Premiere. It’s here that you’ll look at how visuals, sound, graphics and animation work together and learn to understand the key tools and equipment used in digital production and editing.

Video Production (Intermediate)

This intermediate module focuses on shooting in a controlled studio environment where props, sound, and lighting play an important role. In addition to equipment use and maintenance, we explore safety on set - critical for a successful shoot.

Web Design (Introduction)

Did you know coding is actually really creative? The language of code sets you free to create websites that look the way you actually wanted them to. Find out how in our introductory Web Design Short Course and dive straight into the world of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.


Branding & Identity Introduction

This module looks at graphic identities and how branding can communicate value to an audience. We’ll explore the basics of vector-drawing programs (like Adobe Illustrator) and build logos that can be rolled out across multiple formats and media.
