Teaching and assessment methods
On the course students alternate intensive periods of work in lectures, seminars, workshops and practical sessions with time set aside for the completion of assignments, reading and exploring their own particular areas of interest. Regular visits to art museums and galleries around the country provide stimulating opportunities to explore contemporary practice. Guest lecturers offer additional perspectives, and are a source of additional inspiration and ideas and further strengthen links with the profession. During the summer term, all full-time students undertake an eight-week Art Museum/Gallery Experience placement. This enables students to test and develop the content of the taught programme in the workplace environment. Students who achieve the required standard and who wish to work toward the Masters Degree, complete a Masters Dissertation.
All modules are assessed.
