Assessment takes place during your practical classes and rehearsals, performances and your reflective journals. Overall, assessment is largely based on applications of technique in performance situations, either in front of an audience or in workshops. The written element is focussed on your future career, your working environment and critical life skills.
In your third year, you undertake an optional practical or written research project. Again, career focussed, this is chosen by you.
