The programme supports the student in opportunities to undertake live projects which may arise through their own endeavour and works to build such opportunities into the student’s learning and assessment through negotiation of briefs and presentable outcomes. The term ‘live projects’ refers here to a range of activities that extends well beyond those that are primarily commercial and includes social enterprise projects undertaken in connection with community groups, arts organisations and other agencies. Where a student wishes to undertake a live project, it is a requirement that before it commences there is in place a learning contract that specifies clearly how it enables the student to fulfill the module Learning Outcomes, the materials to be submitted for assessment, the date of submission for that material, what the work means in terms of the student’s attendance and workload and an appropriate strategy for supervision by a tutor. That contract has to be agreed by both the module tutor and the Programme Leader.
If you take up a work placement between your second and third year of study, at the University of Hertfordshire you’ll pay no tuition fee for this year. We’ll ask you to make your decision in your second year, so there is plenty of time to think about it.
