Improve your digital skills – for free

Advanced Media Production supported by the European Social Fund through the Welsh Government is led by Aberystwyth University. The project is supporting Wales’ creative industries sector by training professionals and graduates to exploit new technologies in media production.

Advanced Media Production is a unique multidisciplinary scheme between Aberystwyth University’s Departments of Computer Science  and  Theatre, Film & Television Studies.

The Advanced Media Production project aims to provide accredited training to enhance innovation and productivity within Welsh public and private sector industries.

Working in conjunction with Aberystwyth University, we can offer businesses and their employees access to high level training to enable them to become more sustainable and efficient and with a specific focus on new technologies and their potential for increasing growth and jobs.

Training is delivered in an industry-responsive and flexible format enabling students to work via supported distance learning to update their technical knowledge and improve their digital and media skills.


There’s now an even higher level of financial support available through the project in response to the Covid-19 virus situation. Eligible organisations* and the self-employed can now receive up to 100% subsidised training up until the 31st August 2021.
