Assessment method

Our approach to assessment recognises the practical and applied nature of the subject. Most work is assessed by portfolio, with most portfolio submissions consisting of a finished piece, a piece of contextual written work which provides some critique and analysis, and evidence of work-in-progress, usually in the form of a blog or online workflow. You will have opportunities to present interim work for feedback before submission, and deadlines, rather than the clock in the exam room, provide the pressure of time for our assessments, an approach which mirrors working practices in industry. The programme is assessed entirely by portfolio. Most portfolio submissions consist of a finished piece, a piece of contextual written work provides some critique and analysis, and evidence of work-in-progress, usually in the form of a blog or online workflow. There are no formal written examinations.
