Key Units

What will I learn?


The qualification is made up of eight units, which students must successfully complete. All units relate to the creative media sector and include visual, audio and interactive production, most of which have a photography slant, these are delivered through a variety of practical projects.

Students are assessed via a ‘Final Major Project’ which takes place at the end of the course when they are at their best. This large project allows students to demonstrate all the learning that has taken place through completion of the other units. This unit is graded Pass, Merit or Distinction and determines the overall qualification grade. This final project allows learners to show off their photographic skills and take part in an exhibition.
