Assessment method

Each unit is assessed and graded once completed. There will be regular 1:1 verbal and written feedback to help you develop your ideas and work. When not attending lectures, seminars and other timetabled sessions, you will be expected to continue learning independently through self-study. Typically, this will involve reading, working on individual and group projects, undertaking research in the library, preparing coursework assignments and presentations. The independent learning is supported by a range of excellent facilities, including the library, specialist art rooms such as the mac suite and print room.

The approximate guideline minimum English level required for entry at level 4 is "B2" on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
