Painting F (MSTD3542)


The aims and objectives are achieved in the program by the use of a tutorial system. A different academic advisor is assigned to each group of combined Second- and Third-Year students. This grouping fulfils the educational function of peer support and learning, allowing the increasing maturity of the students to be a demonstrable outcome. The academic advisor is responsible for the progress of those students. To provide access to different intellectual points of view the four groups are remixed and rotated over four semesters. The other important aspect of the unit is the one-to-one studio tutorial, where the particular concerns and needs of the student are discussed, tailoring both technical information and theoretical knowledge in relation to the student's evolving work.
