Assessment

 Work-4238

Teaching in the Media Arts department is a mixture of lectures, seminars, screenings, tutorials and practical classes in areas such as performance, editing, filming and screenwriting. You’re also encouraged to undertake a work placement over the summer. In your first year you’ll be provided with a comprehensive grounding in the areas which will lay the foundations for more advanced study in your second and third years.

The first year theory courses are taught in lecture classes and divided into smaller groups for seminars. For the practice courses you're divided into smaller groups for seminars and some of the production exercises. 

The theory courses are assessed by a mixture of three essays and a three-hour exam at the end of the year. The practice courses are assessed by audio-visual (AV) projects and either an essay or a script.

In your second year, you’ll choose three theory 0.5 unit options and take one core 0.5 unit in Creative Industries. The theory options are taught by lectures, seminars and screenings depending on the topic. For practice options, the classes can be slightly larger and taught by seminar in the TV studio or with the appropriate technical equipment, depending on the topic.

All theory courses are assessed by one 5,000-word essay per course. The practice courses are assessed by a mixture of methods depending on the courses chosen. These include AV projects, production papers, scripts and essays.

In your third year, you’ll specialise in one theory and one practice option, for which project groups are kept small. The theory course is assessed by two 5,000 word essays while the practice course is evaluated by a mixture of methods depending on the course chosen.

These include AV projects, production papers, scripts and essays. You’re also required to complete either a dissertation (assessed by a 10,000 word essay) or a research project (also 10,000 words).
