Course Summary

Our Level 3 Extended Diploma in Esports and Digital Marketing has been designed to reflect this ever-growing industry, and as such you will develop your creative, technical and organisational skills across a number of media sectors set against an Esports and digital marketing background. Using industry standard software and equipment, working individually and in teams, you will complete a diverse range of projects from promotional video, to live tournaments, games journalism and broadcasting that will stand you in good stead for either full-time employment or a route into Higher Education.

New Students: 4 GCSE’s at grade 4 or above including English.*

*The College reserves the right to ask for a school reference if required.

Progressing Students: Level 2 Diploma (Merit) with a satisfactory reference for attitude, behaviour, attendance and punctuality.

Please note:

  • For more information about financial support, please click here.

The course is based in a purpose-designed professional standard environment. Students carry out practical sessions and assignments using facilities such as TV studio, Podcast suite, Games Hub and Screening Room with Mac suites and industry-standard editing software. IT facilities include broadcast-standard software like Adobe Premiere, After Effects, NUKE and Maya.

Practical projects include promotional film, podcast and broadcasting, animation, live streaming and audio commentary, supported by more theory-based assignments that cover subjects such as games journalism, contextual studies and industry related topics. All topics are done within the context of Esports, Digital Marketing and social media. These projects are undertaken via a mixture of group work and individual tasks. All creative industries rely heavily on successful communication and the importance of solid literacy and numeracy skills are reinforced throughout the course.

All of the teaching staff at NESCOT have excellent industry experience on a variety of productions. This experience ensures that the teaching that you receive is vocational, current and relevant. This teaching is supported by a number of guest lecturers from media organisations and from technical crew such as producers, camera operators and directors.

The success of our students speaks for itself. In the past 10 years our students won three golds, three silvers and a bronze in the UK World Skills Moving Image competition. We will encourage you to enter competitions and seek work experience beyond your college course. In previous years our students have worked on various feature films, TV shows, music videos and corporate films. Many of our student's progress to Higher Education, either at Nescot on our HND Creative Media course, or they secure places at some of the top universities in the country, progressing to study a diverse range of exciting subjects.
