How will I study? In the autumn and spring terms, you take part in weekly lectures, seminars and hands-on workshops. These are highly interactive and taught in small groups. Assessment is varied and includes term papers and practical assignments.
In the summer, you build on this earlier learning in order to plan, execute and document your own research-based project. This project can take the form of a standard dissertation, a multimedia project or a work placement.
