The Higher National Certificate (HNC) in Creative Media Production (Visual Effects pathway) at Morley College London enables you to learn both practical skills and theoretical thinking through exciting and challenging projects which cover a wide range of modern digital media technologies - all taught in specialist studios with specialist equipment.

Employing ‘real-world’ assignments - developed and taught by tutors working in the Creative Media industry - our curriculum will enable you to push at the boundaries of your creativity in Creative Media Production while gaining a solid foundation of professional techniques.

Going beyond a solely practical and technical foundation, you will be encouraged to explore innovative and imaginative design processes to find your own unique voice and expand your skill level. You will learn to translate your ideas through independent research, experimentation and reflective processes and analyse the work of your peers and industry leaders.

Upon completion of the course, you will be well-positioned for the next step in your career: whether you plan to go on to complete your studies on our HND Creative Digital (Visual Effects); start your own business; or progress directly into paid employment, the HNC Creative Media Production (Visual Effects) course is designed to provide you with the skills you will need to succeed in the media industry.

Morley College prides itself on offering smaller classes with a high student-tutor ratio. These are taught in a friendly well-resourced environment. Our tutors all work professionally in Creative Media production fields and are qualified teachers with years of experience.

Assessment methods

All teaching and learning activities are designed to promote equality of opportunity and accessibility for all students.

These assignments will also help you to develop transferable skills including problem-solving, critical thinking, reflective practice, time management and working as part of a team. You will also be expected to engage in independent learning, which may take the form of e-learning activities via Moodle, independent research, or other relevant tasks.

Assessment will take place through coursework, projects, and the development of a work-related portfolio. We will take into account both your marks on formal assignments and the understanding you demonstrate within your classes in assessing your progress. You will receive feedback on your work throughout the course, both in response to formal assessments and as part of your overall learning experience.
