Please note this module descriptor is indicative of the structure of this course and may be subject to change.
This module extends students’ practice as a self-directed body of post-graduate research, and expands the frame of reference for its contextualisation through critical examination of the work of others, consolidating students’ awareness of the intertwined relationship of practice and theory.
The module begins with discussion of students’ negotiated study agreements. The study agreement will establish a general direction for the student’s individual programme of studio research, identifying any specific needs, with seminars and regular 1:1 tutorials maintaining critical oversight. Workshops will be organised on a responsive basis addressing the development of specific processes and skills. Students are required to collectively organise and present an exhibition of work for assessment, and contribute to a critique of individual work and of the exhibition as a joint outcome.
