Assessment method

A majority of assessments on the course are practically-based assignments (for example, a full designed and built game environment) The taught part of each module will typically comprise a tutor-led exposition, together with supported practical/seminar sessions. Students are strongly encouraged to interact with the lecturer during the taught sessions to ensure that they fully understand the material. Problems that require a significant amount of thought or further reading will be set as exercises to be discussed at a subsequent session. On the days where there are no taught modules it is expected that students will be reviewing the material from previous lectures and undertaking further study based on the recommended reading list. Most importantly, students should be working to complete all the exercises and assignments set during the programme and investigating problems set or encountered during tutorials.
