One of the thrills of the course is working with people with really varied skills and experience. The tremendous range of students’ backgrounds means there are some very creative designs and ideas. Our programme has been running for 56 years and is the longestrunning such course in the UK. It teaches the fundamental skills but also allows students to develop their own personal styles; they are not treated as disciples or part of a flock but as individuals. There’s a really strong network within the industry, and we and our students, both current and former, are an important part of that.

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.
