Both of these programmes take four subjects from the Higher Diploma in Journalism and Media Communications and allow students, principally, to concentrate on acquiring a specific sub-set of journalism skills and ancillary subject expertise. Often, students who take one of these programmes go onto take the full diploma in subsequent academic semesters or years. Modules in both programmes are certified under HETAC’s Accumulation of Credits and Certification of Subjects Scheme (ACCS).

This course has been designed to give students a fundamental knowledge of all aspects of music and sound technology, while providing the encouragement and scope for students to delve deeper into areas of interest.
