Assessment method

A variety of assessment methods are used; however, they are all coursework-based. You will undertake coursework not just for assessment purposes but to consolidate and apply learning as part of the learning strategy for the modules. Owing to the practical nature of the subject, most modules are summatively assessed in part via a portfolio or design presentation to enable you to demonstrate your creative abilities. An essential skill at level 6 is the ability to critically evaluate and reflect. To ensure that these skills are developed, you will also be required to submit a range of reflective statements and evaluative reports based on your portfolio, design outcomes and associated learning experiences.
