Programme structure

All modules will mix face-to-face workshops with online activities. As a practice-based course, sessions will usually involve the application of academic concepts to real-world scenarios, ensuring you’re perfectly prepared for securing a job in industry.

Due to the professional alignment of the programme, examinations will be a common feature when it comes to assessments. However, a variety of methods will be used, and you’ll be required to deliver reports, presentations, essays and project plans, both individually and within a group.

You will regularly engage with tutors, working together to identify any gaps in your knowledge and finding appropriate learning activities to suit your individual needs. A variety of learning activities will be used, whether it be a short written piece or a reflective journal, and you’ll be given regular feedback by your personal tutor.
