New Media Technology College, a former educational institution in Dublin, Ireland (2000–2014) offered a range of BTEC, MA courses in film, photography, animation, game design, 3D, music, performing arts, graphic design and journalism. The college won a number of awards including a Golden Spiders Award and a Digital Media Award.

NMTC initially opened in the basement of 13 Harcourt St. in Dublin city centre. The College soon expanded and eventually occupied 4000 sq ft of this beautiful Georgian building. NMTC installed extensive film and media production facilities including HD edit suites and cameras, digital darkroom, sound recording studio, photographic studio, B/W darkroom and professional multimedia production facilities. It worked closely with leading audiovisual companies and organised visits to their facilities to allow students to experience first-hand professional media environments.

NMTC delivered high-level education programmes in Eastern Europe and North Africa on behalf of the European Broadcasting Union, Geneva. The college was internationally recognised for its unique eLearning courses and developed over 400 online tutorials. In 2004 it signed a 2-year deal with the EBU to deliver new media eLearning programmes. NMTC production company Hypermedia7 Ltd. created the animated 3D logo for the Eurovision Song Contest 2012–13 (with music by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra).

From 2000– 2003 NMTC delivered Irish government funded media industry training programmes. These courses had a 2-year waiting list and 100% employment success rate.

Over the years a wide variety of industry professionals from the UK and Ireland guest lectured onsite and online. NMTC graduates progressed onto various academic institutions including École Nationale Supérieure Louis-Lumière, Trinity College Dublin and the University of Southern California.

In 2013 NMTC rebranded as National Media College. Several student films are available on Vimeo.

In 2014 the College had 24 master's degree graduates in Film, Photography and Animation.[citation needed]
