The Diploma in Creative Writing for TV & New Media develops students’ ability to find, shape and realise their stories, and fine-tuning them into polished content for various media platforms, such as print, television and transmedia.

Students learn to ideate and create stories, put them into words and visuals and present them to the audience. This is done through children's stories, news articles, documentaries, TV dramas and comedies as well as content for website and mobile applications.

With the course, you will:

  • Be inspired. Find your muse in The Writers' Room, our unique space for dreaming and writing. Through our master classes, network with seasoned media professionals from Singapore and around the world. 

  • Leave the classroom. Record your news, reality show or infotainment. Travel overseas to film a documentary as an assignment. Intern with reputable media networks or related companies.

  • Pitch your programmes to industry experts and, if selected, watch them come alive on TV.
