The methods of assessment on this course are specified below under ‘Methods of assessment on this course’. International students who require a Student visa should apply for our full-time courses as these qualify for Student visa sponsorship. If you are living in the UK on a Student visa, you will not be eligible to enrol as a student on Birkbeck’s part-time courses .
If you need extra support before starting an undergraduate degree, we offer a BA Arts and Media Management with Foundation Year degree, which provides two extra years of supported study. This is an ideal route if you are returning to study after a gap, or if you have not previously studied this subject, or if you did not achieve the grades you need for a place on this degree. Birkbeck can give you all of the information and help you need to complete your application form, including our online personal statement tool, which will guide you through every step of writing your personal statement. If you are applying for a full-time undergraduate course at Birkbeck, you have to apply through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service .
This includes learning difficulties, visual and hearing impairments, mental health difficulties, autism spectrum conditions, mobility difficulties, and temporary or chronic health conditions. In your final year you’ll complete a major project that brings together the breadth of your learning, combining the knowledge and skills from your major with thinking from other subject areas. Learn from staff who combine strong academic credentials with deep industry experience, offering insights into the latest trends and the chance to apply your learning practically. Creative workshops will train you to produce industry-standard content across visual, digital and emerging platforms. This includes video, photography, social and digital media as well as traditional methods of communication. In their contemporary configuration, arts and media exist in an expanded field where studio and world collide.

The Young Artists Festival Project is an arts, media, film, music and culture festival for the whole community, showcasing young artists from Swale and Medway. To date, over 60 young people have volunteered and have displayed over 125 pieces of art. One of the things that has drawn me across the Atlantic is Plymouth College of Art’s commitment to material practice and dedicated physical spaces to make, which internationally are becoming a rarity. The studio spaces and resources at the college offer possibilities for new hybrids between analogue and digital making techniques, for using digital and physical expertise to solve problems creatively. Go beyond the studio and interrogate the social, aesthetic and practical dimensions of contemporary practice with staff and students from the interdisciplinary School of Arts + Media.
You’ll receive a minimum of 10 hours of one-on-one time with your supervisor, to agree the scope and direction of your capstone project. You’ll explore topics from a wide range of perspectives, learn to understand the relationships between subjects and start to connect themes and topics across modules. A student who wishes to attend an “ineligible” school, which includes any school in the USA, will forfeit all funding from that semester going forward and all current loans will become due with immediate effect.
Topics include employability, equality, entrepreneurship, diversity and sustainability. The people who take part in our projects include disabled young people and adults, older people living with dementia and memory loss and people with mental ill-health. We support their wellbeing by helping them develop the confidence and skills to connect with their local community and have more of a say in the things that matter to them. In the School of Arts + Media we encourage an understanding of contemporary creative practice as an interdisciplinary endeavour that occurs in the lab, studio, street, landscape, library, theatre, and home.
