Why people love Media

Bitcrush Festival

Bitcrush Festival

Media students helped to organise Bitcrush, the annual three-day games and digital festival, held in aid of Demelza Hospice for Children. 



"The Media course has helped me realise what I want to do after College. I've taken part in design competitions that have helped me develop my own style and skills. This course has allowed me to meet new people and learn new industry skills."
