I was looking for a Performing Arts course with a recognised qualification. I had contacted other colleges but I felt the interview process at NMC was most informative.
The course was excellent. The modules were covered fully and expertly explained. It was apparent how much the tutors love what they do.
The quality of feedback on how to approach assignments was very high. In my opinion the strengths of the course are the tutors, the quality of material delivered, the small class sizes and the approachability of the tutors, administration and management.
NMC is an excellent college. The Performing Arts course builds communication, confidence and education.
One of the main strengths of the (MA Photography) course was the combination of both practical and substantial academic research elements that enabled me to discover a series of hypotheses that I could incorporate into my major project proposal.
The course provided great insight into the area of contemporary photographic practice and allowed scope for a diverse area of exploration.
The college location made life that little easier for me and the tutors were very approachable, knowledgeable and direct in their comments and advice.
Following a number of successful external examiner visits our BTEC HND and HNC results are out this week. Many students have achieved Distinction grades and intend to progress onto MA-level programmes.

Our BTEC HND Performing Arts students performed their play ‘Changing Places’ in the newly refurbished Studio 13 (basement, 13 Harcourt St.).
The play was based on their interpretation and critical analysis of the works of various playwrights including Samuel Beckett, Bertolt Brecht, Lewis Carroll and William Shakespeare.
‘Changing Places’ was directed by Esther Doorly.
Stage Manager – Harry Delaney.
‘Changing Places’ by BTEC HND Performing Arts 2014 – National Media College, Dublin.
Students are busy preparing for the Christmas Showcase of their work-in-progress to be held 19th December. This 1-day event will feature live performing arts, films, 3D animations, interactive media, photography, presentations and feedback sessions.
Our Industry Guest Lecture series has been a great success. We were delighted to welcome a wide range of industry luminaries including Se Merry Doyle, Robbie Fry, Stephen Murnane, Imogen Murphy and Tim Morris.
The series will continue next term.
We are also pleased to announce that we are working with Bradford WWI Film School. We have already organised tutor exchange and will be welcoming Bradford WWI students to Dublin in 2014.
National Media College was recommended to me by a lot of industry professionals. The college felt like a ‘learning home’.
The course had a very good and positive influence on all students as a working group (a family I call it) as we always participated in productions as a crew. Everyone passed the knowledge around which was a very great and a new method of learning which I believe was very successful.
I would definitely recommend NMC to all students around the world.
