How you learn

At postgraduate level it is important that you take an active role in structuring your learning experience, and engage with the relevant methods and underpinning theories of the disciplines you encounter. 

We recognise that students embark on their study with different levels of skills and awareness of the discipline. This programme incorporates regular tutor contact and provides a firm foundation of research, interpretation and writing skills, as well as introducing a range of theoretical approaches. You can choose your own specialisms and negotiate to be assessed in ways that suit your current interests and future aspirations.

How you are assessed

This programme offers different types of assessment including a portfolio of short pieces, conference paper, dissertation, essays, and negotiated projects that can adopt a wide range of styles and formats, provided they meet the assessment criteria. There are no exams.
