Assessment methods

Each module is delivered through lectures and tutorials. Lectures provide you with theoretical information related to the subject and tutorials focus on developing your practical skills. In later tutorials you work on assessments and use this time to get feedback and advice from your tutors.

To support your learning we have a dedicated team of highly experienced tutors who have worked in the industry. Some of our tutors continue to work on part-time enterprise projects, feeding back what they have learned into the curriculum. In addition, you continually engage with live clients to provide industry-relevant solutions. Throughout the course you produce a range of web and multiplatform applications contributing to your own professional portfolios.

We believe that it is essential for you to learn by doing. This course is primarily assessed through practical projects which you work on throughout the year. One of the key features of this industry is the need for job applications to be supported with a portfolio of credible and relevant work. Our learning and teaching approach and assessment strategy acknowledges this need. Throughout the course you are challenged with case studies that are directly related to the topical needs of the job market. We use a range of different assessment types but the problems you solve, the tools you use and the methods you employ are the ones you will use in the workplace. The final-year Project module allows you the freedom to set your own project based on your skills and interests.
