The broad emphasis of our teaching and learning strategy is on exploring creativity and practice through research, theory

and studio projects. A variety of methods are used to assess your learning and progression, as outlined below, but they are all designed to reinforce the strategy of integrating the intellectual and experiential processes of learning in a creative environment.

Modules are based on a brief set by the module leader, or an external agency or company. You will experience practical work in each level, typically in the form of practice-based resolutions to assignment briefs, where creative applications emerge as a result of research and proposals within several modules.

Teaching in year 1 is designed to identify your ambitions for the programme and your strengths and weaknesses. You are introduced to an ethos that promotes reflexive learning, building upwards from this initial diagnosis. Themes and issues dealt with at this introductory level are also common across the programme.

Later Modules foster more independent project orientated modes of study, but with substantial staff support. This prepares you for the final year, in which the expectation is that you will manage your study time yet more independently with continued support and supervision.

Teaching methods include:

  • Studio Teaching takes place in dedicated studios, and is a practice highly valued by students on creative programmes.

  • Lectures and/or presentations by members of academic staff or visitors from outside the University.
  • Seminars or discussion groups set up to discuss issues arising from lectures or from work in progress by the group members. These can involve presentations by you individually to the group, which may be assessed for content and delivery.
  • Group Critiques occur mid-way or at the end of projects or modules. You present your work to the group of staff and students for discussion, for assessment purposes or to review progress.

Active participation in critiques is encouraged and is a valuable opportunity to develop confidence in presentation and communication skills.

Teamworking is an important part of the design process and it is important that you have experience of working in and managing teams. Several modules require teamworking.

Pre-selected teams are established by the teaching staff or student group according to the requirements of the module

descriptor, and/or project brief. These teams will liaise to manage all aspects of the project, meet regularly to undertake research, concept development and final presentation.

Tutorials are set up to enable you to discuss your work with members of staff. These can also involve groups of staff and students, with the objectives of encouraging analysis and reflection and providing feedback on progress. Technical demonstrations of technical processes by staff or technician instructors.

Educational Study visits take place in design consultancies, cities, cultural centres, exhibitions and conferences, and introduce you to industry contacts and working practices. Independent Study is essential in developing and sustaining a professional approach to work. Self-motivation and time management skills are an important part of your education and experience, and this independent practice forms the basis for on-going student learning.
