In this unit, you will apply the knowledge and skills you have acquired throughout the course to define, develop and deliver a personal design project. While you will be provided with support, feedback and supervision to help plan, develop, deliver and present your project, choices such as media and format selection, industry or interdisciplinary focus, the type of design artefact(s) you create, and the way you choose to exhibit or present it, will be self-determined. Engagement with an industry mentor to approximate an authentic workplace or inter-disciplinary experience will be encouraged and supported.
Practical Approaches to Learning at University College
The University College is committed to providing students with opportunities to engage in practical learning experiences. Every unit is therefore driven by at least one approach that is problem or project-based, or that involves work-integrated learning.
These activities allow you to develop discipline-specific skills, knowledge and behaviours, alongside a range of employability skills and professional attributes. Some of these include, for example, active inquiry, communication, social, cultural and ethical responsibility, planning and critical reflection.
