Assessment methods

The programme uses a blended learning approach, combining face to face sessions with online and practical work as appropriate. The learning and teaching methods typically used by tutors include, lectures, seminars, guest speakers, workshops, tutorials and retailer observations. You will also adopt work-based learning as part of your studies through live/industrial briefs and visiting speakers. A significant amount of personal study time is expected to be undertaken by the student comprising, for example, background reading, assignment work, preparation for seminars and revision for examinations. This will further be enhanced by a social learning community including a peer support programme and enhanced personal tutoring.

Our supportive teaching and learning environment is created by a team of well qualified, dedicated and friendly academic, technical, administrative and support staff.
There is also a wide-ranging college system of additional and specialist student support available.
Students are supported in their learning by our teaching and learning strategies, most notably individual academic tutorial support, which is central to the programme and is constant throughout.
Students are also allocated a Personal Tutor who offers pastoral and practical support and guidance.
The Learning Resource Centre includes a large Visual Arts section, which effectively supports and responds to staff and student needs. It comprises a book collection, a large collection of journals and other visual material and subscribes to a number of electronic databases.
