Our state of the art digital media labs are equipped with cutting edge hardware and industry standard software.

We have a wide range of digital photography, video and film equipment which is available for student work and projects. Work placement is an integral part of this course in year three, with students availing of placements in many of Dublin’s leading digital agencies.
By concentrating on digital creativity, and mixing theory with practical work, the course prepares you for success in the evolving creative digital industry and beyond. Working together with likeminded people you will discover how to unlock your own creativity and learn how to tap into your own store of ideas for developing projects.
Over time you will have the opportunity to specialise in a particular area of interest to expert level. We encourage students to exhibit their work on a local and national stage and many have won awards and recognition for their efforts.
