You are taught through a combination of interactive workshops, lectures, seminars and practicals. Interactive workshops take a variety of formats and are intended to enable the application of learning through discussion and small group activities. Seminars enable the discussion and development of understanding of topics covered in lectures, and practicals are focused on developing subject specific skills and applied individual and group project work.
In addition, meetings with personal academic tutors are scheduled on at least four occasions in the first year and three occasions in the second of the course. In addition, you will also have a set timetabled tutorial session per week for you to attend if you wish.
You have an opportunity to undertake a semester long placement in the first and second year of the course, supervised for agreed projects by a work-based mentor and a University tutor.
You use industry-standard design software and have access to excellent facilities throughout the course.
