Course details

Modules

In Year 1 students learn primarily through lectures, seminars, workshops and tutorials, where there is an emphasis on the teaching and acquisition of basic key skillsets. Whilst in Year 2 the continuing teaching and acquisition of keys skills remains important, students will be expected to take greater responsibility in directing their learning as their knowledge increases. Third year students will work increasingly under their own direction. The final year of the MArts is designed to offer the opportunity to both gain a Master's degree and to negotiate that often problematic transition into industry. Core modules in research, communication, and entrepreneurship provide the framework in which the student can engage with industry via an outward-facing project. Examples might include: starting your own production company; working with an existing company on a feature film; or, completing one or more work placements with companies based around a specialism.

Assessment method

Feedback on project work takes place throughout the course in the form of frequent tutorials (both individual and group), seminars and critiques. This process is integral to the course and provides a continuous verbal commentary to the students on their practical work and associated research throughout the development of all of their projects.

Final assessment in the form of visual portfolio, exhibition, research/ideas book/blog, or presentation is used at the end of each module to provide the students with a formal mark.

All assessment is based on 100% coursework. Students are expected to demonstrate their understanding in the form of practical project work. All practical work is project-based. Historical & Contextual Studies is also assessed on coursework in the form of essays and constitutes 20% of your coursework during years 1 & 2, with the dissertation constituting 25% of your final year marks.
