An experienced team of lecturers and design practitioners will be teaching students throughout the course and facilitating a student focused, practical and skills-based approach to learning, with a multi-disciplinary experience as a key factor of the student experience.
Studio Practice and Interactive Workshops will equip students with all the practical skills they need from a creative perspective. Lectures and Seminars will equip them with all the theoretical skills needed from an academic perspective. Live Briefs allow for an agency style group project, bringing both creative and theoretical application together.
This blended, inclusive approach creates a challenging, but exciting learning experience. It fosters the development of students who take responsibility for their own learning, becoming increasingly independent and autonomous as they progress through their studies. This helps promote a professional, lifelong approach to learning. As the student progresses through each level, the criteria assessed become more demanding, searching and challenging.
A mixture of independent study, teaching and academic support from Student Services and Library Services as well as the personal academic tutoring system enables students to reflect on progress and build up a profile of skills, achievements and experiences that will help them towards their goals. Activities and materials will be available through Blackboard virtual learning environment and/or module websites.
Meetings with personal academic tutors are scheduled on at least 4 occasions in the first year and three occasions in each of the other years of a course. Scheduled meeting dates will be provided in the course planner.
