Course content 

Level 4 modules develop generic skills in design and provide opportunities for you to work in a chosen specialist discipline including spatial design, product design, graphic design and interactive media.

At Level 5 it is anticipated that you develop your own learning plans in negotiation with your tutors.

Teaching & Learning

You can find your own work placement or work freelance supported by in-house staffing and resources.

Assessment criteria 

You are actively involved in the assessment process for project-based modules. Interim critiques and regular tutorials provide you with formative feedback on your progression during tasks. Projects culminate with a group critique in which you take part in a presentation simulating the client pitch scenario. This provides opportunities for you to share best working practice and develop your understanding of assessment requirements. Informal oral feedback is provided at this time followed shortly afterwards by formal written feedback giving clear indication of achievement against module criteria.
