Higher Diploma in Arts TV & Media Production

The award-winning Higher Diploma in Arts in Television and Media Production, developed by WIT and Nemeton TV in partnership with Udarás na Gaeltachta, has been successfully preparing new media talent since 2006.  The course will commence again this September 2021 with an exciting and innovative brand new blend of practical workshops and online classes. The eight-month course is uniquely tailored to the needs of students and is particularly suited to those who wish to develop their skills while also working. It is designed to provide students with the essential practical skills to enter the television, film, and audio-visual industries as professionals. Hence, our graduates usually find work immediately upon completing their studies. 

The course will offer each of the participants the opportunity to work in a live production environment and at the end of the course, each student will have directed or edited his or her own television program. These programs will satisfy the broadcast criteria of both TG4 and RTE.  As there is a demand for bi-lingual producers, directors, and editors, the course will be taught in both Irish and English, therefore enhancing the linguistic abilities of students.

Applicants must hold a Level 7 qualification or higher and must have a level of competency in spoken Irish. Applicants without the above minimum requirements but with relevant industrial experience and language competency will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
