The students primarily came from disadvantaged backgrounds with emphasis on women who made up at least 60% of the student population. NEMISA has grown over the years and now produces more than 870 graduates a year, the learners are trained in Television Production, Radio Production, Animation and Graphic Design; MAPPP SETA accredits these programmes.
