School of design

Level of Study

Level 4 - foundation

This level is designed to builds a foundation of creative, intellectual and technical skills in relation to your specific subject and

to your learning.

Level 5 - Continuing your studies

At this point in your studies you will have developed an understanding of the fundamentals underpinning your subject and

will have had opportunities

to explore and develop your subject with more freedom and creativity and to achieve a higher level of technical and

intellectual accomplishment.

You will need to take more responsibility for engaging with your studies at a higher level.

Level 6 - Autonomous learning

Level 6 involves skills such as negotiation, planning, managing and implementing a major design project or undertaking

a significant piece of research

within your chosen specialism.

The most significant aspect of this level is that you will take the major responsibility for generating your own work – your

tutors and peers will still

provide significant feedback but your tuition will be less structured and formal. Your learning will be significantly more

self–initiated.

Level 7 – Postgraduate Study (for MA students)

Level 7work would display mastery of a complex and specialised area of knowledge and skills, employing advanced skills

to conduct research, or advanced technical or professional activity, accepting accountability for related decision making

including use of supervision.

Register with a NHS doctor now

  • Do not wait until you become ill –as you may not feel well enough to take the required action.

  • Choose a surgery close to where you are living, take along proof that you are a student and some ID. You should ask to be added to the list of NHS patients, you will be asked to complete a registration form.

  • When you register ask the receptionist for an information leaflet about the practice – this will tell you haw to make an appointment, what clinics are run. Most surgeries have female as well as male doctors, if you only want to be seen by a male (or female) doctor you should say so when you make an appointment.

  • Identify where your nearest hospital and accident and emergency (A&E) department is located or NHS Walk-in centre (for treatment of minor illness and injuries)

  • Make a buddy, a friend who lives close by and will ‘help out’ if you become ill, for example picking up prescription, collecting some shopping for you, and you can do the same for them.
