Michelle Williams

"I have worked in industry as a project leader, have a doctorate in design and have been an entrepreneur for 10 years. I am dedicated to giving my students real-life experiences to create a design portfolio enabling them to become successful in the direction that they feel passionate about. For example, my first year students are designing a classroom for the British charity ‘IT Schools Africa’. Superdry have also recently set my students a design project to gain an invaluable insight in branding and people’s lifestyle choices. Imagine writing that on your CV after your first year in university."

What are Course Maps and Module Descriptors?

Course Maps

A course map contains a list of the individual study units, called modules, that you study to complete your course. Some modules are compulsory, but you can sometimes choose modules outside your core area of study which interest you.

Module Descriptors

A module is a self contained, individual unit of study. The Module Descriptor provides various details about the module including who the module tutor is, what you will be studying, how you will be assessed and what you will have learned once you have completed the module.
