What You Will Learn

Dynamic and inventive storytelling starts here.

Be bold and transform your projects into world-class content with the Diploma in Media Production & Design (DMPD). DMPD will equip you with highly relevant and sought-after skills in graphic design, social media marketing and broadcast production.

You will also gain first-hand experience about immersive and emerging technologies such as AR/VR and 360-degree video production.
