You attend a combination of lectures and practical sessions for each module. Lectures concentrate on teaching the principles while practical sessions allow you to put these principles into practice in purpose built labs. Throughout your practical sessions you receive feedback on your work and progress. You often work on a piece of work for several weeks building a deeper understanding of the subject as you work. The feedback you receive will help you to get the most out of your learning. In your final year you also undertake a personal project which integrates much of the work you have studied in previous years. A variety of assessment methods are used. Your assessments are designed to build on the work you undertake in class, because your learning continues through the assessment period. An in-course assessment often consists of a practical exercise and an associated report helping you to develop both technical and business skills.
A professionally accredited degree provides industry-wide recognition of the quality of your qualification.
