Creative Media Courses at Nerve Centre

Step into the creative industries with one of our full time courses.

Why choose Nerve Centre? 

Nerve Centre has been at the heart of the local creative industries for over 30 years. While many know us for our live venue, music lessons, cinema programme or the annual Foyle Film Festival, we have been delivering full time courses since 1992.

Many former students have used our courses as a stepping stone to establish careers in the creative arts locally and beyond. Our accredited courses are the perfect way to develop new skills, collaborate with artists, meet new people, learn from professional mentors, grow in confidence as an artist and gain a qualification in the creative industries.

When you pursue one of our full-time courses, you’ll leave with more than a qualification. You’ll gain invaluable skills in creative media, connect with others in the industry and learn from tutors who have years of real-world experience in the arts. 

All of our courses:

  • Are for everyone. You do need to be aged 16+ but there’s no upper age limit. 

  • Run annually from October to June, three days per week.

  • Are accredited by the Open College Network Nothern Ireland (OCN) at Level 3. 

  • Are 100% free (no catches)!  

All our courses are fully accredited by the Open College Network Northern Ireland (OCN NI) at Level 3 and are delivered in partnership with South West College.
