How you'll learn

You'll be taught by a range of staff, many of whom run their own practices or work in practice, which ensures that the practice-led research which is disseminated in the studio or takes place there, is relevant to industry and practice.

Within each module are a design component and support/contextual component with the intention that knowledge and skills are always introduced and developed in relation to studio projects.

    Guided independent study

    When not attending timetabled lectures you will be expected to continue learning independently through self-study. This will typically involve reading journal articles and books, working on individual and group projects, undertaking coursework assignments and presentations, and preparing for exams. Your independent learning is supported by a range of excellent facilities including online resources, the library and Moodle.

    Academic support

    Our academic support team provides help in a range of areas - including learning and disability support.

    Dedicated personal tutor

    When you arrive, we'll introduce you to your personal tutor. This is the member of staff who will provide academic guidance, be support throughout your time at UEL and who will show you how to make the best use of all the help and resources that we offer.

    Workload

    Each year you will spend around 300 hours of timetabled learning and teaching activities. These may be lectures, workshops, seminars and individual and group tutorials. Contact hours may vary depending on each module.
    The approximate percentages for this course are:

    • Year 1: scheduled teaching - 300 hours; guided independent study - 900 hours.

    • Year 2: scheduled teaching - 300 hours; guided independent study - 900 hours.

    • Year 3: scheduled teaching - 300 hours; guided independent study - 900 hours.
       

    Your timetable

    Your individualised timetable is normally available within 48 hours of enrolment. Whilst we make every effort to ensure timetables are as student-friendly as possible, scheduled teaching can take place on any day of the week between 9.00am and 6.00pm. For undergraduate students, Wednesday afternoons are normally reserved for sports and cultural activities, but there may be occasions when this is not possible. Timetables for part-time students will depend on the modules selected.

    Class sizes

    The size of classes can vary depending on the nature of the course, module and activity. This can range from large groups in a lecture theatre setting, to smaller groups taking part in seminars and collaborative work.

How you'll be assessed

Assessment tasks are mainly spread across the year to make the workload manageable. Assessment methods may include group work, exams and individual work including essays, presentations, case studies, professional development and practical activities depending on the nature of the course. All grades count towards your module mark. More details will be included in the student handbook and module guides. You will always receive detailed feedback outlining your strengths and how you can improve. We aim to provide feedback on assessments within 15 working days, although you will receive immediate feedback following many of our face-to-face assessments.

I enrolled on a foundation year and left with a first-class honours degree. A huge thank you for the opportunities given to me and many others a chance to achieve and learn. The supervisor who taught me in my first and final year and my final project supervisor genuinely cares and takes pride in his work. I couldn’t have asked for a better teacher."
