Course structure

You will experience a broad range of different teaching experiences based on the type of modules you take. Theory-based modules tend to be taught via lectures supported with seminar groups, whereas the practice-based modules employ a mixture of workshops and technical demonstrations alongside guided tuition. Some modules put you at the centre of your own independent learning experience supported with regularly scheduled one-to-one feedback sessions, whereas production-based modules often require you to work in small groups in order to complete larger-scale tasks.

The two theory-based modules are assessed with presentations and essays whereas the three practical modules are assessed on the media forms that are produced as part of the module (eg pitches, films, projects, evaluations). Media forms tend to be group-based while evaluations are independent.
