Student Experiences

 

“I am a 40-year-old mature student doing the “Advanced Certificate In TV And Film Production ” at Kinsale College. The most unique aspects of the course are its flexibility in terms of the freedom you have to structure your own workday as opposed to being in a highly formalized, lecture heavy environment, all day access to editing suites and computer time and the opportunity to engage in additional multimedia and animation training.

You have access to your own individual I Mac all day everyday and can choose when you wish to film or edit once you adhere to your assignment deadlines.

This uniquely free environment with access to my course teacher whenever needed for guidance allowed me to excel by letting me to design my own path of learning. I achieved distinctions in all 8 First Year modules. I highly recommend this unique film course.”
