This could range from working with live media (such as gameplay footage, producing and publishing your own podcast or producing incidental music/sound for any form of media).

Students will also gain knowledge of the creative process in relation to sound design and composition with an aim to have created an original product by the end of the course. Students will receive and Edinburgh College certificate and be encouraged to progress onto the AVID accredited Pro-Tools 101 course starting May to further develop their skills and future opportunities in the Creative Industries.
