    Hi Niyati,

    In answer to your questions:

    a. You will have scheduled teaching and/or activities for up to 40% of the course and workshops, research and practical work for around 60% of the course, as agreed with your subject specialist tutor.

    b. There are opportunities to work at London Fashion Weeks, and UCA can provide contacts, but the work would have to sought out and organised by yourself rather than the course organising it for you.

    c. The MA Contemporary Jewellery is project-based, but is supported by seminars, tutorials, workshops, work in progress sessions and critiques. At postgraduate level, you are expected to identify, develop and manage your own MA project and further develop the skills needed for autonomy of research.

    The assessment strategy for the MA course is concerned with your development in two areas; your understanding of bodies of knowledge and the application of a range of advanced skills in the deployment of this knowledge. The bodies of knowledge can be categorised briefly as follows; contexts and concepts (critical, historical, cultural and professional), methodological (research methods and processes), and technical. The applied skills that need to be demonstrated by a master’s student are analysis and interpretation, creativity and innovation, technique, communication and independence.

    d. Many of the faculty are professionals in their field, and we have a lecture series with guests from the course's industry contacts.

    e. Contact [email protected] and ask if you can contact the course leader or a recent graduate - they should be able to put you in touch with someone.

    a. There is a Hindu Sabha which is a 12 minute walk from campus, which hosts events and activities.

    b. There are a few Indian restaurants and takeaways within walking distance of the campus (for example Bengl Brasserie, Raj of India), but the food there would be a British version of Indian food, and a little different to the food you would have in India.

    If you have any more questions you can email [email protected]
