You will be taught through a combination of lectures, seminars, small-group tutorials, screenings, practical workshops, media practice including location work, or using our purpose-built TV studio and multimedia labs, group work and guided independent research and study. Private study and preparation are essential parts of every course, and you will have access to many online resources and the University’s comprehensive e-learning facility, Moodle. When you start with us, you are assigned a Personal Tutor to support you academically and personally.
Assessment is carried out by a combination of examinations at the end of your first year, and after that, written assignments (essays, scripts or production papers), extended essays, assessed coursework, and a portfolio of practical work.
Outside the tasks and assessments required by their curriculum, students are encouraged to take full advantage of our technical facilities which are available on a 24/7 basis to create a portfolio of individual creative work.
