  • We're back on campus for teaching

    Your course will be taught through a mix of on-campus and online learning called blended learning. This gives you Your timetable will be built around teaching time using our facilities on campus with online sessions for some activities where being virtual adds value. That means it’s not going to be like 2020 over again. We've combined the best of our pre-pandemic teaching with what's worked best for students while they've been learning at home.

    We’ve planned your learning so it has most benefit for you. Practical workshops and hands-on learning will be all held on campus:

    • If studying BA Digital Media, you will be introduced to creative software for digital image making, video editing and post-production, motion graphics, interactive UX (user experience) and UI (user interface) design and web development in our Digital Media Workshops, and will have a chance to use equipment from our KitHub. Seminars will also be face-to-face

    • BA Visual Effects students will also have workshops and equipment training on campus, as well as filming in the greenscreen room

    • Similarly, if on the BA/BSc Games Design programmes, you will be able to interact with your classmates in person when playing tabletop games, helping you with user observation, deconstruction and cohort building.
  • Innovative teaching that's enhanced by technology

    Our approach to teaching and learning is evidence based and designed using feedback from students and staff during the pandemic and in previous years. For example, our students particularly liked the digital online tools and practices we have put in place to support learning and teaching last year.

    Discord was used across the three programmes, successfully maintaining a sense of community and we’re excited to continue this, meaning you will get the best learning experience possible.

    Some of the more contextual and theoretical parts of your course will be taught online, meaning you can re-watch lectures when you need to (and save on travel costs too!). Tutorials will continue to be held virtually. Students found they were able to have more contact time with tutors online, as well as better help from technicians

    Tech also allows us to add innovative new ways of teaching into the mix like. Building on the success of last year, if studying Digital Media you will be provided with podcasts, video lectures, interactive online trainings and social network analysis tools, as well as full access to Linkedin Learning.

    Both Games Design and VFX students will have recorded lessons on demand and remote access to our professional workstations computers on campus with all the software you need via Splashtop.
