Assessment Methods

The MA Filmmaking programme uses a variety of learning and teaching strategies, all of which are intended to facilitate to development of independent learning. After some initial theoretical, research and creative modules, practice will be facilitated through a series of core and optional modules that help you develop your own project ideas in partnership with tutors and supervisors. A great deal of autonomy is integrated into this programme whilst maintaining as much of a taught component as is necessary for theoretical and contextual studies.

Learning and teaching strategies include formal lectures, practical workshops, seminar and tutorial work. The types of assessment that these strategies involve (discursive essays, oral presentations, assessment of practical videographic and photographic/still image projects etc.) will allow you to effectively and independently integrate theory, creativity and practice, a key aim of the programme. As is common practice in arts and media education, and due to the creative nature and negotiated aspects of the programme, formal examinations are not used as assessments.
