Assessment methods

To cater for the wide-ranging content of our courses and the varied learning preferences of our students, we offer a range of assessment methods on each programme. Assessment techniques vary from module to module to reflect relevant assessment approaches and the key learning points of each topic. This is a project-oriented course. You will develop design ideas in the studio, guided by semester tutors and, at regular intervals, by joint review panels of design tutors and external critics who will comment on your progress. Teaching is intensive and you will learn via one-to-one and group discussions plus regular presentations of work, so that continuous group and self-assessment is built into your course. The environmental, structural and constructional aspects of your design projects will be assessed in technical workshops. You will also need to submit: written, drawn and modelled coursework submissions, a written and illustrated dissertation, written and illustrated essays and reports plus reflective statements.
