Assessment method

Performances/events Students regularly have the opportunity to take part in performances/events throughout their degree, in which we can see growth and application of skills and knowledge. Regular tutorials We hold formal and informal tutorials throughout the degree in which each student discusses their work with the module tutor or Programme Director. We look at practical development, conceptual growth and future intentions. Presentations Presentations normally take place at the end of a module, exhibition or performance, in order to measure a student’s performance against assessment criteria. Process workbooks Students will document their process and practical work in a workbook which demonstrates their learning and individual pathway.
