Creativity and innovation are encouraged through the use of different methods of programme delivery and assessment, such as interactive on-line learning, group discussions, critique sessions, workshops and dedicated seminars delivered by guest lectures, hands-on projects and studio work. Assessments are largely project based; students will work independently on some projects, always with guidance from their lecturers, and as part of a group for larger projects.
An integral component of the degree is work placement or applied practice in the third year of the programme, which will allow students gain experience in a commercial environment. Alternatively, students may choose to work as part of an existing organisation designing multimedia content on a voluntary basis.
