Teaching

Learning takes place through a combination of timetabled learning and independent study.

You can view more information about how each module is taught within our 'What you will study' section.

Seminars and workshops enable you to discuss and develop your understanding of topics covered in lectures in smaller groups. You will also be able to meet your personal tutor. Timetabled learning may fall between 9am and 9pm depending on your courses and tutorials.

Class sizes

The typical student intake per year averages 75-80. Lectures are normally attended by larger groups, and seminars or tutorials by smaller groups. Numbers can vary more widely for modules that are shared between degrees.

Independent learning

Outside of timetabled sessions, you are also expected to dedicate time to independent study (around 8-10 hours per module per week).

Every module will involve further reading and research. You may also be expected to spend time preparing for classwork such as presentations and group discussions, and for assessed coursework and examinations.

You can use our Stockwell Street Library and online resources to support you in these activities.

We encourage you to join student societies such as:

Overall workload

If you are studying full-time, you should expect the workload to be similar to a full-time job (approx. 40 hours per week in total). For part-time students, this will reduce in proportion with the number of courses you are studying.

Each module you study towards this degree is worth 30 credits. These represent around 300 study hours respectively. If you receive 72 contact hours for a 30-credit module, you should expect to commit 228 hours to independent study to complete it successfully.

Assessment

Students are assessed through a combination of assessment methods depending on the modules chosen.

You can view how each module is assessed within our 'What you will study' section.

Each course has formal assessments which count towards your grade. Some courses may also include 'practice' assignments, which help you monitor progress and do not count towards your final grade.

Sandwich placements last for between 9-13 months. Work-based learning module placements are normally one day a week for either one or two terms depending on the number of credits available from the module.

What are the financial arrangements?

What sort of careers do graduates pursue?

Career options are wide-ranging. They include studio and location camera work, editing/post-production, screenwriting, producing, TV and commercial work, and multimedia design and production.

Are internships available?

Students are encouraged to take up Summer internships during the Summer holidays, though it is up to the student to find them. Support is available to students from the Employability and Careers Service when applying for placements and internships.

Do you provide employability services?

Employability activities take place all the time at Greenwich and students are encouraged to take part in as many opportunities as possible. The central Employability and Careers Service provides support for students preparing to apply for placements and graduate roles, such as CV clinics, mock interviews and employability skills workshops. In addition, your School has a dedicated Employability Officer who will be organising work-related activities throughout the year which will help you to build you industry knowledge and networks.
