An open learning style that broadens your career horizons
I was really taken by the level of detail and the the number of exciting job opportunities that studying the Diploma of Screen and Media provides. I have long had a passion for script writing, however the example work our teachers provided us with opened my eyes to other areas of interest such as lighting and screenplay. Furthermore, studying alongside like-minded people and the way in which TAFE Gold Coast facilitates a more open style of learning, has broadended my horizons and strengthened my options within the industry.
