University of Lincoln has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
The Arts Foundation Year at Lincoln provides an alternative integrated entry route onto a wide range of degree-level programmes in the College of Arts. Students on the Arts Foundation Year study common modules that allow students the opportunity to experiment, explore, and develop the core skills and knowledge required to pursue a degree within the creative arts and become increasingly more specialised as the course progresses. The combination of modules has been tailored to the needs of the degree programme that the students wish to progress onto after successful completion of the foundation year. The course has also been designed to support students who know they want to study a creative subject but are unsure of which pathway to take.
The Foundation programme is structured around modules that are designed to develop core creative and academic skills needed for successful University study. The practical modules will be taught in the studio though thematic projects that can be interpreted through a range of disciplines. As the programme progresses students will work closely with specialist staff and students from their chosen pathway, and will be expected to become increasingly independent. The final module provides an opportunity for students to complete an extended project, which aims to develop students' personal creative direction.
The way students are assessed may vary between modules. Examples of assessment methods that are used include creative works, written assignments, presentations, sketchbooks, documentation of your working process and development of ideas. Group work is a feature of contemporary creative practice and is assessed through presentations, shared outcomes, and records of individual contribution towards a shared goal.
The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data. For further information, see the Discover Uni website.
