Assessment Methods:
Students will be assessed (primarily) by summative coursework assignments. On-going formative assessment is also undertaken during set (timetabled) classroom times. Formative assessment will be a regular feature of the semester, encompassing peer review, opportunities for QA (Quality Assurance), detailed feedback and guidance from tutors. Summative assessment such as coursework, presentations and group work will require students to: Model and provide optimal solutions for a given scenario Demonstrate an understanding of application work flow Write and present verbal and written reports on development and application-based approaches to problem solutions. Summative assessment such as unseen examinations generally will not be used in the course (with the exception of a small component of one of the Level 4 modules - 3D Modelling). The course assessment on the degree is spread over a period of time to give students the maximum opportunity for achievement. This should also ensure that students are able to submit work to a standard that meets the assessment required on each module and that they have the opportunity to work at the highest level possible. The proposed course assessment schedule for this new degree will conform to the agreed assessment tariff.

With the campus in the lovely Islington, north London, you are right on the doorstep of so many great things here. The Kings Head Pub and Theatre has some of the best new shows in the city, the Union Chapel has amazing gigs in an incredible atmosphere. Camden Passage is nearby too, with lots of interesting things for your flat. Camden is of course a short walk away, and you can get down into east London on the Overground easily. I had such an amazing time living in London, really the best city in the world!

    It was good, the Uni has some issues but the teachers are aware and try their best to make sure that the students don't have to deal with them.
