Teaching and assessment

We believe a hands-on, interactive and participative workshop approach to learning with modest group sizes is the most effective way to develop the types of skills that employers look for in graduates.  Each module you’ll undertake is usually supported by a weekly tutor-facilitated workshop of approximately 2.5-3 hours. Group sizes are typically 20-25 students.  At the end of the workshop, you’ll normally be tasked to undertake intersession work that then feeds into the next workshop.

Our approach encourages you to be proactive and offers an environment that’s well suited to enabling you as a student to share your thinking and explore different ideas.

You will be assessed by a variety of methods, including essays, examinations, project work and presentations and seminar discussions.  Modules are assessed at every stage of the course, offering cumulative assessment of your progress. Your academic advisor and lecturers are available for advice throughout your degree.
