Modules

Current modules on this programme are: Semester 1: Theory and Practice. This module builds on the foundations of theory and creative practice established in your previous education. You will frame your work in contemporary contexts, competitions or live projects delivered in collaboration with external agencies or creative partners. There will always be a continuing focus on your future creative aspirations. Employability is central so you are asked to consider the relationship of your own practice to the diverse and emerging creative industries. The theory element of this module aims to showcase your critical writing. You will plan and write an extended, independent research project. Working with academic supervision, you will consider subject areas that may or may not link to your practice. This writing will then be packaged into a designed publication. Semester 2: The Empty Module. This Module is an ‘empty’ space for you to be active agents in choosing how it is filled and connects to your future aspirations. A flexible and innovative approach to solving problems and working with ideas to produce exciting and challenging outcomes is encouraged. It is a space where working across disciplines, alongside others in an interdisciplinary mode is also encouraged.

Assessment methods

We use a wide range of assessment methods throughout the course. You will also be encouraged to assess and evaluate your own progress and the work of others as part of your studies. The course values the ability to reflect on learning and to use assessment as a tool to improve and get better. You will receive regular verbal and written feedback throughout the year culminating in key assessment points when summative* feedback is provided. *Summative assessment is where you receive a mark for your work.
