Teaching consists of a combination of lectures, tutorials, group projects, practical workshops and self-directed study. Guest lectures from specialists working within the creative sector are organised throughout the year, and it is advisable that you attend as many of these sessions as possible. Critical sessions are delivered by a cross-faculty team of academic researchers in VFX, film, animation and the arts so students will benefit from a cross section of expertise specific to the area which is being studied in each module.
Assessment will take place via submitted coursework constituting production and pre-production work, through individual and group projects, peer review, written exploratory pieces, and submitted academic materials. You will present work in a variety of traditional and contemporary digital formats.
You will normally attend 13-17 hours of timetabled sessions each week, and are expected to undertake at least 20-25 further hours per week of directed independent study and assignments as required.
