Broadcasting Television Production

It is high energy, demanding, and creative. If you are interested in 'lights, camera, action'... if you have script ideas that are just waiting to be produced... or if you have a passion for 'getting the story and the facts', then take a closer look at a career in Broadcasting. You must be creative, motivated, a good communicator, resourceful, a team player, have technical and production interest and a sense of humour.

You will train for entry level positions as studio and location camera operators, video editors, news reporters and announcers, script writers, production assistants, television technical operations personnel or for related careers in television sales, marketing & promotion, advertising or corporate communication.

Join a winning team... set yourself on a path to a successful career in Television broadcasting and production. Come and study with us in our exciting, new, fully digital facilities, built in the summer of 2006 as part of CAMP (Center of Applied Media Production)!
