Course details
Course UCAS code: W801
Qualification type:
  • BA (Hons), Full-time Including Foundation Year , Duration: 4 Years
Course Summary:
Our undergraduate degrees with a foundation year are an alternative entry route into university for those without more traditional qualifications or grades, or are entering university after a notable period of time out of education. The programme offers support and guidance in developing the skills required for degree-level study. The foundation year will focus specifically on communication (oral and written), critical thinking, research, independent study, digital and employability skills. The modules are designed to embed the development of these skills within the broad areas of business, communications, humanities and social sciences. On successful completion of the foundation year, students will automatically progress on to the first year of our Creative and Professional Writing programme
Modules:
Students will take four core modules as part of the foundation year: Personal Learning Competencies, Taking a professional Approach; Thinking Critically, Creatively and Ethically, The Individual Project, London Stories and Performing Identities
Assessment Methods:
With no exams, the programme - by its very nature - places a premium on practical exercises, coursework and projects, so skills will be assessed by a diverse range of methods. Modules are assessed on the basis of creative writing portfolios, course workbooks and presentations. Attendance and active participation in writing workshops is an essential aspect of assessment for some modules. All assessment is coursework based, with no examinations. In the final year of the programme it's possible for you to be assessed in large part on lengthier-scale projects. These will be produced within the framework of a special study or portfolio, under the close supervision of a specialist tutor.
Application deadline details:

    Honestly St. Mary’s University, Twickenham is a great place to study. Compared with other it is quite small and everything in mostly in one place. They provide great services if you need help and have a wide variety of societies and clubs.
