I got offered a place to do Print Digital Media Technology Management (Level 8) in Round Zero last week off the CAO.
It was NOT what I was planning to do at all. In my application this was down as Number 6 on the Level 8 options.
I was hoping to get offered Film and Broadcasting (Level 8) in DIT OR TV and Media Production (Level 7) in Carlow IT, but unfortunately I appear to have been dismissed from these options for the time being..
However I MAY still get offered these in Round One if they are made available to me.
I accepted the course I was offered today as a backup. If all comes to all and I get offered nothing else, I am CONSIDERING going to DIT to do this...
But from what I have researched, it appears to be PRIMARILY a business degree with a dabble into the media-- I wouldn't have much interest in business which is putting me off.
Basically I'm hoping a current/past student of this degree could let me know a bit more about it... Ideally, I am hoping to enter the media industry, particularly broadcasting.
Could any of you tell me more about this course? Would you recommend it? Is it primarily business focused? What jobs would come as an outcome to this degree?
Also, if anyone else has submitted as a non standard applicant through fetac in the past (like me), did you get offered anything in your Level 6/7 options ALSO or at the round one stage? I got five distinctions out of a possible nine and was confident that it would secure me a better place...
Ah well! Round one will tell!
In the meantime, any information would be sound...
... Also, what's DIT like?
