I'm considering going back to college at the end of the year and was thinking about taking this course: http://www.dit.ie/media/documents/st...%20Leaflet.pdf
I've done a degree in IT and English and a higher diploma in Systems Analysis (more IT!) and then somehow ended up working in HR for 5 years!! Basically, I don't like HR and always wanted to do something more creative. I was thinking of getting into creative digital media as a means of combining my creative side with my IT skills.
Has anyone done this course? I've talked to the course co-ordinator a few times, but don't want to be badgering him too much. I'm actually on the GoBus at the moment on the way up to the open day, so I'm sure I'll have more info after that, but I'd like to hear advice from people who have done it (or something similar).
Basically, I don't know what kind of career opportunities open with this qualification? I love film-making and spend most of my free time making small projects with my friends. I already use Premiere Pro and After Effects fairly well, but would love to improve on this and obviously get into the professional field. Does it mean a lot of freelance work? Or are there a lot of opportunities in advertising, tv and ultimately film?
Thanks for any advice!
